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 public floggings, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.098 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 5,164 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 223,593 stolen Silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,124,691 per year while the poor average 24,843, a ratio of 45.3 to 1.
Pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, the road to capitalism has proved an epic drama of adventure and exploration, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. 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.
