The People's Republic of Mharata is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 189 million Mharatans 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 tiny, moralistic, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The thriving Mharatan economy, worth 13.5 trillion Mohurs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 71,503 Mohurs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 341,684 per year while the poor average 8,774, a ratio of 38.9 to 1.

The children of Mharata are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, teddy bears and pajamas have replaced briefcases and suits in Mharata's offices, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mharata's national animal is the Elefante, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Mharata is ranked 81,590th in the world and 33rd in Latinoamerica Libre for Most Armed, with 0.45 weapons per person.
