The Meddling Kids of Mystery Gang is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Anonymous with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The cynical, devout population of 4.373 billion Mysterians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hidden City. The average income tax rate is 24.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mysterian economy, worth 475 trillion Scooby Snacks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,822 Scooby Snacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, Anonymous has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, and Cult of Maroon has been named as Mystery Gang's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mystery Gang's national animal is the Scooby, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Maroon.

Mystery Gang is ranked 265,442nd in the world and 6th in Allied Conservative States for Fattest Citizens, with 5.8 Obesity Rate.
