The Workers Republic of Murphtannia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Murphy with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 2.249 billion Murphtannians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birmingham. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Murphtannian economy, worth 215 trillion pounds 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 95,718 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Murphtannia will pay them to stop, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Murphtannia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Battleshipism.

Murphtannia is ranked 56,301st in the world and 572nd in 10000 Islands for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.94 Bank.
