The Parliamentary Democracy of The United Empire of New Missouri is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Felix Jokerst with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.528 billion New Missourians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sainte Genevieve. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient New Missourian economy, worth a remarkable 1,548 trillion Missourian Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 181,636 Missourian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 605,556 per year while the poor average 40,564, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Hell is not always other people, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The United Empire of New Missouri's national animal is the Bluebird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

The United Empire of New Missouri is ranked 4,376th in the world and 3rd in Right to Life for Most Primitive, scoring 104.46 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
