LeaderPrime Minister Murphy


The Workers Republic of Murphtannia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Murphy with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 4.207 billion Murphtannians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birmingham. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Murphtannian economy, worth 444 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 105,566 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Murphtannian flag qualifies you for citizenship, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, the comic book series 'Prime Minister Murphy and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Murphtannia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Battleshipism.

Murphtannia is ranked 19,128th in the world and 350th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 63.73 quips per hour.
