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 notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.317 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business 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 21,071 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 718,760 Myrthan Souls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,115,430 per year while the poor average 33,375, a ratio of 153 to 1.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. 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 51st in the world and 5th in the Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 27,876.78 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
