The Sense of Superiority of Myrth is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Stavros Djubric with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.545 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 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 Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Myrth's pristine beaches, Myrantos is a police state during international summits, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Myrth's national animal is the black dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Myrthan Soul.

Myrth is ranked 2nd in the Pacific and 26th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 38 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
