LeaderThe Dominus


The Dictatorship of Myness is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Dominus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.551 billion Mynessians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mypolis. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mynessic economy, worth 96.5 trillion mynors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,210 mynors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Myness are blocked up with orders for new public loos, a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics, planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", and the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Myness's national animal is the calamander, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Myness is ranked 52,463rd in the world and 1,702nd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,212.94 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
