The Monarchist Empire of Missouria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Lukas with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.079 billion Missourians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newer Jeffersonia. The average income tax rate is 43.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Missourian economy, worth 279 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 134,609 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and Missouria Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Missouria's national animal is the Cardinal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sqidism.

Missouria is ranked 167,939th in the world and 93rd in First World Order for Most Armed, with 0.26 Weapons Per Person.
