The Long-Lasting State of Mintyfresh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Most Supreme Czar Merton Dew with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.884 billion Mintyfreshers enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moogle Cafe. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mintyfresh economy, worth a remarkable 6,262 trillion stolen Silvers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 232,957 stolen Silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,143,145 per year while the poor average 27,171, a ratio of 42.1 to 1.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, and the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted. Crime is well under control. Mintyfresh's national animal is the night owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mintyfresh is ranked 8,703rd in the world and 1st in South Mogs Sea for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 42.07 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
