The Maritime Republic of Milfgaerd is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Trident Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.255 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maritimas. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Milfgaerdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,962 trillion milfs a year, is quite specialized and 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 237,715 milfs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 168,694th in the world and 5,747th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 459.87 milliStalins.
