The Intermittent Republic of Murab is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Optimist Iago XII with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.203 billion Murabians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Misery. The average income tax rate is 5.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Murabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,911 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. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 232,984 New Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation excels at displacement, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Murab. 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 5,463rd in the world and 15th in The Western Isles for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 75.43 Bank.
