The Snowy Paradise of Mjaumjau is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.449 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 98.2%.

The enormous but inefficient Mjaumjauan economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 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 70,411 mehs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, people are always able to look each other in the eye, and many believe that Leader's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it. 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 231,967th in the world and 284th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
