The Republic of Mirum is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Lyra Elmspirit with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.499 billion Mirians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portmont. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mirian economy, worth 330 trillion Mirian Pounds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,244 Mirian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, funny-looking kids are stood at the front of the classroom for everybody to point and laugh at, and denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mirum's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mirum is ranked 254,945th in the world and 3rd in Puppets of Mountainus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -33 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
