The Matriarchy of Miliarat is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Mother with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.784 billion 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, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matgorod. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Miliaratian economy, worth 478 trillion queens a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 268,418 queens, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,445,830 per year while the poor average 25,907, a ratio of 55.8 to 1.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. 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, and its national religion is The only true faith.

Miliarat is ranked 185,183rd in the world and 897th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.57 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
