The Allied States of Machu Cornwall is a huge, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 317 million Machu Cornwallians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Machu. The average income tax rate is 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Machu Cornwallian economy, worth 20.7 trillion Machus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 65,212 Machus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Machu Cornwall's national animal is the Blue Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Machu Cornwall is ranked 24,595th in the world and 733rd in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 88.06 Years.
