The Glittery Cookie Queen of Minineenee is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Melisande Rahl with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 36.48 billion Minineeneeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dena. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Minineeneean economy, worth a remarkable 4,399 trillion Glitters a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,598 Glitters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, future leaders of Minineenee regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, and the Minineeneean delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minineenee's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Discordianism.

Minineenee is ranked 15,393rd in the world and 330th in the West Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,183.78 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
