The Federal Republic of Misnomers is a huge, genial nation, notable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 826 million Misnomersians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Misnomersian economy, worth 34.7 trillion Bolts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 42,007 Bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some paycheques only arrive every 12 to 24 weeks, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Sigma Virus, and treason is relative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Misnomers's national animal is the Sigma Virus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Misnomers is ranked 44,402nd in the world and 95th in Anteria for Largest Governments, scoring 19 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
