The Grand Duchy of 46566 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lamont Cranston with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 35.636 billion Midgaris are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midgar. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midgari economy, worth an astonishing 20,694 trillion Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 580,714 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the nation's athletes must all cross the finish line together while holding hands, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and a speech a day keeps climate change away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 46566's national animal is the Spiteful Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is National Orthodoxy.

46566 is ranked 227,794th in the world and 7th in New Coalition of Nations for Most Extreme, scoring 11.88 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
