Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Brennanndi Ríki of Muspellheim is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by God-Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.688 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, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. 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 20,664 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 652,121 ISSP Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,687,489 per year while the poor average 104,180, a ratio of 25.8 to 1.

Historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. 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 150,821st in the world and 49th in Scandinavia for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.27 Crimes Per Hour.
