The Empire of Money and Food is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord of Gold with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.127 billion millionares 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lydia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.6%.

The frighteningly efficient rich economy, worth 249 trillion million dollar bills a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 117,440 million dollar bills, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 375,922 per year while the poor average 27,850, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.

The fastest growing demographic of porn viewership is twelve to seventeen, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Money and Food's national animal is the one dollar bill, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Richism.

Money and Food is ranked 13,960th in the world and 1st in Mane Upod Nos for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,995.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
