The Incorporated States of Muahhahah is a large, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed population of 93 million Bluepills have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 18.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Oblivious economy, worth 5.54 trillion Chortles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,610 Chortles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Insolent whistleblowers receive their just desserts on deserted isles, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Muahhahah's national animal is the Giggle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Muahhahah is ranked 48,573rd in the world and 65th in Spiritus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,178.04 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
