The Federation of Greater Morna is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sergey Horace with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.394 billion Greater Mornans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falkograd. The average income tax rate is 54.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Greater Mornan economy, worth 159 trillion Falks 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 an impressive 114,379 Falks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, the love has gone in Greater Morna, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Morna's national animal is the Greater Mornan Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Scientific Atheism.

Greater Morna is ranked 249,682nd in the world and 6,682nd in Lazarus for Highest Drug Use, scoring 7.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
