The Principality of Muppet News Flash is a huge, pleasant nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 650 million News Reporters 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Muppet Newsroom. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.6%.

The strong News Reporter economy, worth 38.7 trillion Viewers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 59,471 Viewers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 169,099 per year while the poor average 16,696, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, child shoplifters spend half their youth behind bars, and the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Muppet News Flash's national animal is the News Article, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Muppet News Flash is ranked 127,752nd in the world and 1st in Nationstates News Flash for Nudest, with 94.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
