LeaderMirishial VIII


The Holy Empire of Mirishial is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Mirishial VIII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 799 million Mirishials 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Runepolis. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Mirishial economy, worth 64.1 trillion Relias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,221 Relias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

When their backs are against the walls Mirishials look out for gay men, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and Mirishial VIII has just been declared ruler of Mirishial in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mirishial's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mirishial is ranked 62,255th in the world and 1,630th in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 81.83 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
