The Republic of Madballerinas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Victoria Page with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.329 billion Madballerinas hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tutu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient corps economy, worth a remarkable 6,823 trillion red shoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 280,468 red shoes, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

For just a few extra red shoes Madballerinas can get new driving records with their new cars, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBM Governor goes house hunting, and medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Madballerinas's national animal is the mouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Madballerinas is ranked 239,323rd in the world and 1st in Plie for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -37.55 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
