The Inkwell Lobby Chair of Morndul is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the President-for-life with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.529 billion morndulians 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 medium-sized, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montepellico. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.6%.
The powerhouse morndulitarian economy, worth 598 trillion Upper Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 91,733 Upper Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 417,480 per year while the poor average 12,322, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.
Elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Morndul's national animal is the Snail, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
