The Third of His Name of King Minos is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vavax with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 14.664 billion Labyrinthians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King Minos City. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant King Minosian economy, worth 250 trillion Drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 17,050 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, criminals are thrown to the Phoenixes to repay their debt to society, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Minos's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

King Minos is ranked 77,258th in the world and 23rd in The Labyrinth for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,502.69 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
