The Most Serene Republic of Mysterio is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.817 billion Mysterians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The very strong Mysterioan economy, worth 343 trillion Mystics a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 59,010 Mystics, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 180,265 per year while the poor average 14,972, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mysterio's national animal is the Bull.

Mysterio is ranked 116,105th in the world and 9th in Hive for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,557.44 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
