Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Brennanndi Ríki of Muspellheim is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.148 billion Muspellsons are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muspell. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Muspellheimian economy, worth an astonishing 20,095 trillion ISSP Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 645,171 ISSP Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,877,464 per year while the poor average 89,874, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', business leaders are mailing God-Emperor forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs, and God-Emperor often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Muspellheim's national animal is the pussy, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Surtr-worship.

Muspellheim is ranked 2,532nd in the world and 4th in Scandinavia for Largest Black Market, with 200 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
