The Holy Mercantile City State of Mammonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Plutocrat Aurelius Midas with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, flagrant waste-dumping, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.184 billion Mammonians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mammonia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mammonian economy, worth 817 trillion Mammonions a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 256,892 Mammonions, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,401,043 per year while the poor average 24,141, a ratio of 58.0 to 1.

The mummified remains of former kings are apparently discovered every time a tourist loses their wallet, hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, babysitters are a thing of the past, and the government is lending a hand to private industry. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mammonia's national animal is the loanshark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mammonism.

Mammonia is ranked 23,496th in the world and 1,165th in Balder for Largest Black Market, with 7.56 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
