The Long-Lasting State of Mintyfresh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Most Supreme Czar Merton Dew with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.076 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 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 are ignored. 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 4,516 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 214,283 stolen Silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,086,027 per year while the poor average 23,453, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.
Nude art is becoming wildly popular, military spending recently hit a new high, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups. Crime, especially youth-related, is a 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.
