The United Socialist States of Myzov is a large, orderly nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 50 million Myzovians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 53.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Myzovian economy, worth 2.10 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,969 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Myzov's national animal is the elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Myzov is ranked 127,801st in the world and 5,510th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 32.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
