The Rational Republic of Mirchusko is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Temis Aenea with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.006 billion Mirchuskoites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyperion Orbital. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Mirchuskoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,501 trillion eigencredits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,598 eigencredits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Mirchusko's radio stations, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, the comic book series 'Temis Aenea and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. Crime is totally unknown. Mirchusko's national animal is the red koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mirchusko is ranked 4,855th in the world and 102nd in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,454.05 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
