Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Power and Glory of Myrth is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Stavros Djubric with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.678 billion Myrthians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myrantos. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Myrthian economy, worth an astonishing 24,221 trillion Myrthan Souls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 764,621 Myrthan Souls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,520,126 per year while the poor average 33,814, a ratio of 163 to 1.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Myrantos's water use, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Myrth's national animal is the black dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Myrth is ranked 42,723rd in the world and 1,512th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,454.37 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
