The Jingoistic States of Mowte is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, free-roaming dinosaurs, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 767 million 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Education and Environment 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 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Postmortem economy, worth 109 trillion Topper-Cents a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 142,131 Topper-Cents, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,188,577 per year while the poor average 3,299, a ratio of 360 to 1.

Major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, and smog in Kloraus Tet City is so bad that fresh air bottles are sold by street vendors. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mowte's national animal is the Spider-Emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mowte is ranked 141,356th in the world and 156th in Forest for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 46.33 on the Hayek Index.
