The Grotesque Playground of Mackintosh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Magnificent Bastard with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 39.276 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, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. 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 30,293 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 771,301 managerial prerogatives, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,886,373 per year while the poor average 50,652, a ratio of 96.5 to 1.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and the comic book series 'Magnificent Bastard and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. 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 2,440th in the world and 9th in Wysteria for Lowest Crime Rates, with 128.02 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
