The United Confederate Republics of Magnerberg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pope Plato with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.316 billion Bergeses 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monad City. The average income tax rate is 72.0%.

The all-consuming Magnerbergian economy, worth 140 trillion Florins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,590 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, glassy-eyed Magnerbergian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Magnerberg's national animal is the Silver Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnosticism.

Magnerberg is ranked 38,949th in the world and 225th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Authoritarian, with 1,280.06 milliStalins.
