Tel Mithru

Population5.344 billion

CapitalTel Xin
LeaderSavior Rex


The Imperium of Tel Mithru is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Savior Rex with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.344 billion Mithru 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tel Xin. The average income tax rate is 35.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mithru economy, worth a remarkable 1,224 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 229,083 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

International commentators accuse the nation of aggressive cultural imperialism, postcards from Mithru driving test centres are popular souvenirs, women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tel Mithru's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tel Mithru is ranked 63,912th in the world and 2,931st in Osiris for Lowest Crime Rates, with 66.88 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
