The Desert People of Mirahge is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General Chekman with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The compassionate population of 29.831 billion Mirahgeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falorn. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mirahgean economy, worth a remarkable 6,887 trillion Memes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 230,889 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget, candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, the housing market has collapsed like an overbaked Brancalandian souffle, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mirahge's national animal is the Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Grilled Cheese.

Mirahge is ranked 13,406th in the world and 41st in Canada for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,720.08 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
