The Doctoral Monkey Feet of Mousebumples is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by sisters Lizzy and Sasha Hall with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.031 billion 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 Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moustantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, long-haired treemouse racing stadiums are open 24/7, citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, and crime has increased substantially since the police concentrated all their efforts on arresting the rich for loitering in their own homes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mousebumples's national animal is the long-haired treemouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the flying monkey.
