The Experimental Ideas of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 19.018 billion McMasterdonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Intelligentsia. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,869 trillion Livres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,903 Livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. McMasterdonia's national animal is the McMasterdonian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

McMasterdonia is ranked 215,202nd in the world and 8,028th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -286.86 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
