The Sense of Superiority of Myrth is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Stavros Djubric with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.608 billion Myrthians 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 is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myrantos. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Black dragon Lasagne is a hit, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Myrth's national animal is the black dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Myrthan Soul.

Myrth is ranked 12th in the Pacific and 800th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 290 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
