Population371 million


The Federal Republic of Masonwoods is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and frequent executions. The devout population of 371 million Masonwoodsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Masonwoodsian economy, worth 12.0 trillion argents a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,478 argents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', those found guilty of illicit affairs are jailed, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, and notable individuals are granted land and titles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Masonwoods's national animal is the leopard.

Masonwoods is ranked 170,252nd in the world and 5,076th in the Rejected Realms for Most Armed, with 0.26 Weapons Per Person.
