The Benevolent Dictatorship of Miltovia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Milton I with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.524 billion Miltovians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The tiny, corrupt, socially-minded government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Milton. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Miltovian economy, worth a remarkable 6,485 trillion milts 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 301,306 milts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The decision to be oppressed is now made democratically, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Fort Milton, and women give birth underneath so many blankets that the doctor can't feel the bump. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Miltovia's national animal is the wombat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Campbellism.

Miltovia is ranked 650th in the world and 2nd in Taijitu for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 299,800.27 Standard Monetary Units.
