The Planet of Mousto Readia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Planetary Governor Calidus with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.794 billion Mousto Readians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hive Nova Halitus. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mousto Readian economy, worth 283 trillion Thrones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 158,069 Thrones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Public toilets are famed for their rear entries, eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mousto Readia's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Mousto Readia is ranked 5,213th in the world and 48th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 60.81 Whatever.
