The Intermittent Republic of Murab is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Optimist Gorice XIII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.902 billion Murabians 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Misery. The average income tax rate is 28.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Murabian economy, worth a remarkable 2,982 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 273,608 New Groats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. 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 415th in the world and 3rd in The Western Isles for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6,405.51 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
