The Intermittent Republic of Murab is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Optimist Iago XII with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.824 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 tiny government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Misery. The average income tax rate is 6.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Murabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,514 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 221,970 New Groats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, Murab is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Misery Times is sold out. Crime 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 5,654th in the world and 17th in The Western Isles for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.97 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
