The Presidential Dictatorship of Miseria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Snow Miser with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.503 billion Misers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laiska Kaupunki. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Miserian economy, worth 172 trillion Miser Bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,919 Miser Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Miseria, scientists spend more time enduring government inspections than they do on actual science, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miseria's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Adam Smith's Wealth of Nationsism.

Miseria is ranked 51,497th in the world and 54th in The United Empires of Carson for Most Authoritarian, with 969.23 milliStalins.
