Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Inkwell Lobby Chair of Morndul is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the President-for-life with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.027 billion morndulians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, pro-business government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montepellico. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.7%.

The powerhouse morndulitarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,024 trillion Upper Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 92,893 Upper Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,761 per year while the poor average 12,478, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

The nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Morndul's national animal is the Snail, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Morndul is ranked 18,956th in the world and 4th in The Inkwell Lobby for Highest Crime Rates, with 15.74 Crimes Per Hour.
