The Queendom of Muertio is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Queen Ripley-Becca with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.686 billion Muertians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beccaton. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Muertioan economy, worth 436 trillion Bells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 162,665 Bells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Science fiction invariably depicts socialist societies as Utopian, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Muertio's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is ZoŽism.

Muertio is ranked 41,014th in the world and 207th in Europeia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,634.01 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
