Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Power and Glory of Myrth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Stavros Djubric with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.665 billion Myrthians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myrantos. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Myrthian economy, worth an astonishing 24,205 trillion Myrthan Souls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 764,431 Myrthan Souls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,855,775 per year while the poor average 27,044, a ratio of 216 to 1.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of Myrantos's water use. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Myrth's national animal is the black dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Myrth is ranked 150,578th in the world and 6,019th in the Pacific for Most Devout, with 2.77 Prayers Per Hour.
