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 notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.267 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, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 5,767 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 significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 228,258 stolen Silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,160,151 per year while the poor average 24,841, a ratio of 46.7 to 1.

Squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. 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 9,021st in the world and 2nd in South Mogs Sea for Largest Black Market, with 26.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
