The Maritime Republic of Milfgaerd is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Trident Council with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.097 billion Milfgaerdians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maritimas. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Milfgaerdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,701 trillion milfs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 239,707 milfs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-milf treacle machine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Milfgaerd's national animal is the seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Milfgaerd is ranked 962nd in the world and 16th in Europe for Safest, scoring 155.17 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
