The Grotesque Playground of Mackintosh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Magnificent Bastard with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 38.735 billion Mackintoshians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Wasteland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mackintoshian economy, worth an astonishing 29,807 trillion managerial prerogatives a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 769,530 managerial prerogatives, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,931,186 per year while the poor average 49,004, a ratio of 100 to 1.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, and politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mackintosh's national animal is the worker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Mackintosh is ranked 16,172nd in the world and 15th in Wysteria for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 100.63 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
