The Labyrinthine Mystery of Realm of the Mothers is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Maternal Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.296 billion Mothers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Platonic Ideal City. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maternal economy, worth 986 trillion milk and honeys a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,224 milk and honeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a mortuary next to every Maternal restaurant, tourists avoid using the nation's bugged phones and monitored internet, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Realm of the Mothers's national animal is the Mountain Gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Faustian Bargain.

Realm of the Mothers is ranked 219,841st in the world and 4th in Palimpsest for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6.48 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
