The Holy Empire of Myrass is a tiny, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12 million Myrassians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The very strong Myrassian economy, worth 798 billion Myrennis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 66,534 Myrennis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 430,065 per year while the poor average 4,137, a ratio of 103 to 1.

Legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens, planespotters are emigrating in droves, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Myrass's national animal is the Myrassian Viper, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Myrass is ranked 242,484th in the world and 11,661st in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 4,137.74 Standard Monetary Units.
