The Snowy Paradise of Mjaumjau is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its closed borders, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.27 billion Mjaumjauans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Free Socialist City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The enormous but inefficient Mjaumjauan economy, worth a remarkable 1,140 trillion mehs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 70,087 mehs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, people are always able to look each other in the eye, and many believe that Leader's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mjaumjau's national animal is the Boom, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mjaumjau is ranked 237,835th in the world and 261st in Spiritus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -16.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
