The Dictatorship of Miniplenty is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Big Brother with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.204 billion Oceanians 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.4%.

The thriving Oceanian economy, worth 484 trillion Dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. 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 impressive 115,209 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miniplenty's national animal is the Watcher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of the Party.

Miniplenty is ranked 233,404th in the world and 1st in Nomic for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -9.9 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
