The Commonwealth of Massatoosits is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The High Council with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.417 billion Massatoosi 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bostopia. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Massatoosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,885 trillion Shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 187,140 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Massatoosian Values' advise against being proud of Massatoosits, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and flight attendants rip down curtains with revolutionary fervor. Crime is totally unknown. Massatoosits's national animal is the Golden Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Saint Patrick's Day.

Massatoosits is ranked 1,666th in the world and 27th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.52 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
