The Grand Duchy of 46566 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lamont Cranston with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 28.047 billion Midgaris are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, 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 15,409 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 Gambling. 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 549,410 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, tax rises are attributed to divine will, Lamont Cranston is famed for giving great back rubs, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. 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 Shinto.

46566 is ranked 118th in the world and 1st in New Coalition of Nations for Highest Economic Output, with 15,409 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
