The Noble Republic of Mietkael is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Albert IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.381 billion Mietkaelians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Education, with Spirituality, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oxford. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.8%.

The very strong Kaelian economy, worth 47.7 trillion Kaelian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 34,535 Kaelian Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mietkael's national animal is the Black Swan and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Mietkael is ranked 37,988th in the world and 96th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 8.66 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
