The Republic of Murelia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Stanislav Belyakov with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.338 billion Murelians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murmansk. The average income tax rate is 41.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Murelian economy, worth 422 trillion Dals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,685 Dals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Autocrats are persona non grata, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Murelia's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Murelia is ranked 214,379th in the world and 10,508th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 11.18 on the Hayek Index.
