The Kingdom of Minorus cellus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Osmosis Jones with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.528 billion Minor cells 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuclei City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Minorus cellusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,704 trillion single cells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 199,901 single cells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 620,097 per year while the poor average 49,616, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence, and the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minorus cellus's national animal is the amoeba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Osmosisism.

Minorus cellus is ranked 105,700th in the world and 5,765th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 35.19 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
