The Long-Lasting State of Mintyfresh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Most Supreme Czar Merton Dew with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.342 billion Mintyfreshers enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 4,202 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 Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 206,597 stolen Silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 794,330 per year while the poor average 37,002, a ratio of 21.5 to 1.
Military spending recently hit a new high, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, 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.
