Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Power and Glory of Myrth is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Stavros Djubric with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.122 billion Myrthians 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 minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myrantos. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Myrthian economy, worth an astonishing 20,839 trillion Myrthan Souls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 715,586 Myrthan Souls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,647,839 per year while the poor average 43,908, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, Myrth's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, half of Myrth's doctors can't speak the language, and former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Myrth's national animal is the black dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Myrth is ranked 178,244th in the world and 8,512th in the Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 12.2 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
