The Democratic Republic of Mutz is a massive, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.905 billion Mutzians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 44.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Mutzian economy, worth 154 trillion Batzes a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,041 Batzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mutz's national animal is the HimmugŁegu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mutz is ranked 14,588th in the world and 784th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,658.92 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
