The Most Serene Republic of Muirstead is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 507 million Nerds are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Axehammer. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Muirsteadan economy, worth 37.7 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 74,275 Gold Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, Muirstead's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, and cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Muirstead's national animal is the Ghost Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Muirstead is ranked 9,138th in the world and 116th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.49 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
