The Dominion of Minco Islands is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of prisons, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 211 million Minco Islanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.9%.

The strong Mincoan economy, worth 12.1 trillion Mincoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 57,280 Mincoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 173,494 per year while the poor average 14,711, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Mincoan politicians are often described as having more style than substance, Leader's new office has a propensity to catch on fire, credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government, and videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Minco Islands's national animal is the Great White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Minco Islands is ranked 41,379th in the world and 2,153rd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,461.97 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
