OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Long-Lasting State of Mintyfresh is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Most Supreme Czar Merton Dew with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.969 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moogle Cafe. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Gambling, and Soda Sales industries.

Military spending recently hit a new high, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Mintyfresh's national animal is the night owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the stolen Silver.

Mintyfresh is ranked 1st in South Mogs Sea and 37,461st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 37 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
