The Maritime Commonwealth of Mishmaria is a massive, pleasant nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.488 billion Mishmarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Administration, although Healthcare, Public Transport, and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 24.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Mishmarian economy, worth 50.0 trillion manats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,626 manats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, foreign envoys that want to visit Mishmaria now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones, and the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mishmaria's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mishmaria is ranked 92,508th in the world and 49th in International Northwestern Union for Highest Economic Output, with 50.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
