The Grand Duchy of 46566 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lamont Cranston with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.742 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. 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 17,997 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 Woodchip Exports. 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 566,992 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children prefer to begin their day with push-ups rather than breakfast, a government program is underway to revitalize 46566's beaches, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 46566's national animal is the Spiteful Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is National Orthodoxy.

46566 is ranked 5,790th in the world and 3rd in New Coalition of Nations for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,704.26 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
