The Jingoistic States of Mowte is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 293 million Morticians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kloraus Tet City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.8%.

The all-consuming Postmortem economy, worth 33.4 trillion Topper-Cents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 114,106 Topper-Cents, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 767,982 per year while the poor average 6,320, a ratio of 121 to 1.

Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, and legions of police officers force people to move into massive urban apartments. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Mowte's national animal is the Spider-Emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mowte is ranked 76,942nd in the world and 138th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,336.68 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
