The Civilisation Game of Mastodonia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Shepard Blaine with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.994 billion Mastodonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Mastodonian economy, worth 709 trillion Postagestamps 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 177,700 Postagestamps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The climate agreement has actually increased the volume of hot air in the atmosphere, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mastodonia's national animal is the mastodon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Project Pope.

Mastodonia is ranked 106,123rd in the world and 1,012th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 17.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
