|Capital||Bois de Duc|
The Grand Duchy of Mireze is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 597 million Mirezeans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bois de Duc. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.8%.
The very strong Mirezean economy, worth 40.5 trillion Mirezean Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 67,809 Mirezean Francs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 237,097 per year while the poor average 14,094, a ratio of 16.8 to 1.
Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, research into 'designer babies' is banned, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Mireze's national animal is the falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
