|Faith||The Cult of Tyr|
The Protectorate of Miaphia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tyr Moniq with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.976 billion Miaphians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyr. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Miaphian economy, worth 306 trillion moniqs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 155,275 moniqs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, pocket dialling is a criminal offence, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miaphia's national animal is the Miaphian Goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of Tyr.
