The Inkwell Lobby Chair of Morndul is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by the President-for-life with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.431 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 prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montepellico. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.0%.
The powerhouse morndulitarian economy, worth 684 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 frequent. Average income is 92,075 Upper Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 419,039 per year while the poor average 12,368, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.
The nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. 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.
Morndul is ranked 1st in The Inkwell Lobby and 30,389th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 123 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
