The Intermittent Republic of Murab is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Optimist Iago XII with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.057 billion Murabians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Misery. The average income tax rate is 13.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Murabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,609 trillion New Groats a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 228,105 New Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being dead no longer has any benefits, it's best not to ask what goes into Misery Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime is totally unknown. Murab's national animal is the Ravening Sloth, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reformed Empirical Syncretism.

Murab is ranked 206,722nd in the world and 223rd in The Western Isles for Most Avoided, scoring 0.23 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
