The Benevolent Dictatorship of Miltovia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Milton I with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 19.764 billion Miltovians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. 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 5,451 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 275,822 milts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Every noble family has a 'personal file' on record courtesy of the central intelligence service, randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, atheists are heavily taxed, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. 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 170,298th in the world and 44th in Taijitu for Most Inclusive, scoring 6.18 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
