The Scattered Tribes of Mrglglglgland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Morgl with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.823 billion Mrghlandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The relatively small government prioritizes Environment, with Spirituality and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mrrglrlrlrmgrrr. The average income tax rate is 21.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Mrghlish economy, worth 409 trillion Spiralshells a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Furniture Restoration. 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 41,648 Spiralshells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
People who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, millions of simultaneously backfiring toilets have flooded Mrrglrlrlrmgrrr with effluent, an iron curtain has descended around the nation, and military training in Mrglglglgland emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Mrglglglgland's national animal is the Tasty Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Tideism.
