The Intermittent Republic of Murab is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Optimist Iago XII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.447 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 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 36.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Murabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,730 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 232,351 New Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, interest in globalism never flags, and every workday begins with group therapy. 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 794th in the world and 1st in The Western Isles for Smartest Citizens, with 239.29 Quips Per Hour.
