The United Republic of Maeiland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Jonathan Laauw with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.943 billion Mæilanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mæiland City. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mæilandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,390 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,483 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, astronauts take one small step for Maeiland and one giant step backward from confrontation, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maeiland's national animal is the Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maeiland is ranked 75,926th in the world and 2,765th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 124.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
