The Atrahasian Republic of Haja-Mishu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Doge A R X Ibranum with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.953 billion Shurayu are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shuraya. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Shurayu economy, worth a remarkable 3,879 trillion Ruons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 354,151 Ruons, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,025,022 per year while the poor average 29,953, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is, High Doge A R X Ibranum's new android secretary is the latest media darling, consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, and door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes'. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Haja-Mishu's national animal is the Lamassu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Haja-Mishu is ranked 17,968th in the world and 4th in The Fourth Sovereign Charter for Highest Drug Use, scoring 100.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
