The Matriarchy of Miliarat is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its closed borders, deadly medical pandemics, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 537 million Miliaratians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matgorod. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Miliaratian economy, worth 70.0 trillion queens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 130,442 queens, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,048,872 per year while the poor average 3,720, a ratio of 281 to 1.

Fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes, kids feel more beat up than ever after a hard day at school, Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues, and the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miliarat's national animal is the Queen Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Miliarat is ranked 35,743rd in the world and 180th in 10000 Islands for Most Authoritarian, with 1,401.67 milliStalins.
