The Snowy Paradise of Mjaumjau is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.613 billion Mjaumjauans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Free Socialist City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The large but underdeveloped Mjaumjauan economy, worth 885 trillion mehs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 60,564 mehs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, and people are always able to look each other in the eye. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mjaumjau's national animal is the Boom, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mjaumjau is ranked 205,395th in the world and 256th in Spiritus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -24.7 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
