The Intermittent Republic of Murab is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Optimist Severin IV with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.075 billion Murabians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, 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 54.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Murabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion new groats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,155 new groats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, and international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty. Crime is totally unknown. Murab's national animal is the sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reformed Empirical Syncretism.

Murab is ranked 16,821st in the world and 32nd in The Western Isles for Most Stationary, with 860.46602569028 Days.
