The Intermittent Republic of Murab is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Optimist Iago XII with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.864 billion Murabians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Misery. The average income tax rate is 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Murabian economy, worth a remarkable 2,187 trillion New Groats a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 246,815 New Groats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Murab's national animal is the Ravening Sloth, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reformed Empirical Syncretism.

Murab is ranked 697th in the world and 1st in The Western Isles for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 40,073.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
