The Commonwealth of Mionara is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Otto von Marks with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.768 billion Mionarans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minaret. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mionaran economy, worth 227 trillion Franks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,444 Franks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, and teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mionara's national animal is the Walrus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ottomin.

Mionara is ranked 33,406th in the world and 1,678th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,950.38 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
