'Madao' is a word with a series of meanings, based from the manga 'Gintama'. The word bears many different meanings, but they are basically shortened Japanese phrases.
Even though this is not an actual name, in the anime, Taizou Hasegawa, a formally employed government worker would be referred as one, and many of the main characters would refer to Hasegawa as "Madao", though it is unknown which of the many meanings of madao Hasegawa is referred as. Kagura and Shinpatchi are the characters that would address Hasegawa as Madao, though there are some instances that they wouldn't.
