Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Long-Lasting State of Mintyfresh is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Most Supreme Czar Merton Dew with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.782 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 5,934 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 230,186 stolen Silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,178,532 per year while the poor average 24,685, a ratio of 47.7 to 1.

Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Most Supreme Czar Merton Dew's most personal functions, the mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of Most Supreme Czar Merton Dew holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. Crime is relatively low. Mintyfresh's national animal is the night owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mintyfresh is ranked 149,572nd in the world and 2nd in South Mogs Sea for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.38 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
