Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Power and Glory of Myrth is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Stavros Djubric with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.112 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, 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 23,479 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 754,672 Myrthan Souls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,762,983 per year while the poor average 50,061, a ratio of 95.1 to 1.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Myrantos, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 179,106th in the world and 8,712th in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 20.18 Years.
