The Watchfires of MadI-1 is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.025 billion MadI-1ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 32.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The MadI-1ian economy, worth 402 trillion $$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,150 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, birth rates have hit an all-time low, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MadI-1's national animal is the Death's-head Hawkmoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

MadI-1 is ranked 62,409th in the world and 1st in Madeira islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.2 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
