Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Power and Glory of Myrth is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Stavros Djubric with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.139 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, well-organized 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 23,502 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 754,760 Myrthan Souls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,763,534 per year while the poor average 50,067, a ratio of 95.1 to 1.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, meteorologists are instantly recognizable from their luxury cars and jewelry, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, and concussed black dragonball players cannot remember their lineup position. 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 159th in the world and 5th in the Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 16,537.61 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
