The Kindred Insulatorum of Murden is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Dauphȳn Atenus I with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.206 billion Murdenites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandros. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Murdenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,583 trillion serens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 280,632 serens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and leading ethologists are being investigated for illegal electoral interference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Murden's national animal is the white dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Regnotheism.

Murden is ranked 160,967th in the world and 938th in Europeia for Most Primitive, scoring -696.16 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
