The Queen's State of Mfumu is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 9.767 billion Mfumuans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Mfumuan economy, worth 39.0 trillion betales 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, quite specialized black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. 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 3,995 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mfumu has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Republic of Congo, The Governor has just been declared ruler of Mfumu in an international press conference, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mfumu's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mfumu is ranked 47,082nd in the world and 5th in Republic of Congo for Largest Black Market, with 2.21 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
