The Incorporated States of Mirflandia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 413 million Mirflandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.4%.

The very strong Mirflandian economy, worth 34.8 trillion Mirf Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,161 Mirf Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 348,361 per year while the poor average 13,346, a ratio of 26.1 to 1.

90% of active duty MAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, and lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mirflandia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mirflandia is ranked 67,291st in the world and 780th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,998.92 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
