The Emirate of ThE MaIyA is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 464 million MaIyAns hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 7.0%.

The MaIyAn economy, worth 24.1 trillion Fortinais a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 51,881 Fortinais, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The roads are virtually falling apart, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around ThE MaIyA City, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. ThE MaIyA's national animal is the Ox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ThE MaIyA is ranked 53,592nd in the world and 2,239th in The East Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 43.68 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
