The Jingoistic Police State of Mowte is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Dick Tator with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.238 billion Morticians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kloraus Tet City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Postmortem economy, worth 471 trillion Topper-Cents a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 145,586 Topper-Cents, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,187,776 per year while the poor average 3,863, a ratio of 307 to 1.

Nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, pre-eclampsia in pregnancy is treated with encouragement to take "long soothing walks", the line of people waiting for a visa interview in front of foreign embassies is typically a mile long, and bleach is the nation's most common pesticide. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mowte's national animal is the Spider-Emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Worship of our savior Dick Tator.

Mowte is ranked 252,998th in the world and 640th in Forest for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 9.44 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
