The Free Complex of MiriAi is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President Tanner with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 878 million MiriAns are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 101st Partition. The average income tax rate is 60.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient MiriAn economy, worth 125 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 143,193 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, President Tanner has more friends than ever before, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around 101st Partition. Crime is totally unknown. MiriAi's national animal is the autonomous vacuum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

MiriAi is ranked 236,552nd in the world and 112th in Social Technocratic Union for Most Primitive, scoring -401.54 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
