The Kingdom of Mifan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Hades with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.402 billion Mifanians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Den. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 85.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mifanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,737 trillion Credits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. 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 an amazing 204,245 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, Hades's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, 'I'm Coming Out' has shot to the top of the nation's music charts, and government programs are less "written" and more "plagiarised". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mifan's national animal is the Direwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wolfism.

Mifan is ranked 14,165th in the world and 652nd in Lazarus for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 107.46 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
