The Long-Lasting State of Mintyfresh is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Most Supreme Czar Merton Dew with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.645 billion Mintyfreshers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moogle Cafe. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Mintyfresh economy, worth a remarkable 4,713 trillion stolen Silvers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 217,761 stolen Silvers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,348,913 per year while the poor average 15,167, a ratio of 88.9 to 1.
'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mintyfresh's national animal is the night owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
