The Clawed Fat Tuna Eating of Mathuvan Union is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm Von Brandenburg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.477 billion Preußians 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 prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cruïlla De Reis. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brandenburgen economy, worth 449 trillion Kronenmünzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,341 Kronenmünzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child, parents dread their examinations more than their children, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, and antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mathuvan Union's national animal is the Wide Ringed Rare Brandenburg Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Brandenburg.

Mathuvan Union is ranked 9,439th in the world and 131st in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 95.98 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
