The Empire of MIRZAHAN is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Emperor MIRZAHAN the Great with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.319 billion MIRZAHANS are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MIRBURG. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient MIRZAHANian economy, worth 531 trillion ASIOS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 229,070 ASIOS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 792,663 per year while the poor average 48,372, a ratio of 16.4 to 1.

An underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation. Crime is relatively low. MIRZAHAN's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Faith MIRZAHAN.

MIRZAHAN is ranked 168,719th in the world and 37th in Union of KingMakers for Safest, scoring 11.3 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
