The Commonwealth of Miragnac is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 609 million Miragnacians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Miragnacian economy, worth 86.8 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,486 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Camera crews have accompanied conscripted dancers to film 'Marching On Ice', takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, and beggars on the street are often heard asking for spare votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miragnac's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Miragnac is ranked 145,812th in the world and 6,270th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -4 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
