The Land of the Rising Atoll of Republic of Minerva is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Morris C Davis with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 11.785 billion Minervans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Victoria. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Minervan economy, worth a remarkable 2,162 trillion Minerva Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 183,494 Minerva Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,083,159 per year while the poor average 14,403, a ratio of 75.2 to 1.

A shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, and the fattest folk in Republic of Minerva look to be the happiest ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Republic of Minerva's national animal is the starfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Republic of Minerva is ranked 26,573rd in the world and 18th in Libertatem for Smartest Citizens, with 50.77 Quips Per Hour.
