The Grand Duchy of 46566 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lamont Cranston with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 32.678 billion Midgaris are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midgar. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Midgari economy, worth an astonishing 18,864 trillion Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 577,273 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and many believe that the only good Spiteful Crow is a dead Spiteful Crow. 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 50th in the world and 1st in New Coalition of Nations for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 194,293.79 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
