The Special Attendancy of Mudd Planet is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stella Mudd with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.849 billion Stellas are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Throne Room. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mudd Planet economy, worth 129 trillion Gold-pressed Latinum Strips a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,504 Gold-pressed Latinum Strips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts, aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, and jury duty means front row seats to a spectacular show. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mudd Planet's national animal is the Harry Mudd, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Silicon Heaven.

Mudd Planet is ranked 53,864th in the world and 20th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Developed, scoring 64.14 on the Human Development Index.
