Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Minorus cellus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Osmosis Jones with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.939 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuclei City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Minorus cellusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,554 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 195,852 single cells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 556,765 per year while the poor average 54,998, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, the family of Osmosis Jones bite their thumbs at paparazzi intrusions, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. 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 12,646th in the world and 703rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 82.24 on the Human Development Index.
