The Desert People of Mirahge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Chekman with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, national health service, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 31.632 billion Mirahgeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government prioritizes Administration, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falorn. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mirahgean economy, worth a remarkable 7,512 trillion Memes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 237,484 Memes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, reflection is vital for badly behaved politicians, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and religious citizens are closely monitored for signs of self-harm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mirahge's national animal is the Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Grilled Cheese.

Mirahge is ranked 277,234th in the world and 189th in Canada for Fattest Citizens, with 0.75 Obesity Rate.
