The Commonwealth of Magellum is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Caretaker Ferdinand Magellan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.271 billion Magellans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trinidad. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Magellan economy, worth 90.7 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,358 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign governments' extravagances. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Magellum's national animal is the egret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Magellum is ranked 20,223rd in the world and 1,031st in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 57.26 Atheism Rate.
