The Miraculous Miracle of Miraclia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President-for-life Ronald T Dump with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.059 billion Miraclians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miraclia City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Miraclian economy, worth an astonishing 20,322 trillion Monits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 579,677 Monits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,564,379 per year while the poor average 41,144, a ratio of 86.6 to 1.

Saying the word 'eggplant' is now a criminal offense, annual government budgets include a sizeable spend on "making things look fabulous", this year's hottest seller is plenary indulgence, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Miraclia's national animal is the spotted lionfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Miraclian Catholic.

Miraclia is ranked 154th in the world and 3rd in Texas for Highest Average Incomes, with 579,677.94 Standard Monetary Units.
