The Suspicous Empire of Minata is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lego Boi with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.983 billion Minatans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Athanus. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Minatan economy, worth 171 trillion Mikans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,446 Mikans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, the hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to, and the teaching of evolution has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minata's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Minata is ranked 38,918th in the world and 358th in 10000 Islands for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 69.02 Effective Tax Rate.
