The Armed Protectorate of Ministeria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Bélier with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26.862 billion Ministerians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Social Policy and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Healthcare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ministerian economy, worth a remarkable 3,482 trillion Sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,640 Sovereigns, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", international trade is a sticky issue, Ministerian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ministeria's national animal is the ovis aries, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sheepism.

Ministeria is ranked 155,995th in the world and 9th in The New Meritocracy for Most Average, scoring 33.87 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
