The Green Durian Lovers Haven of Musang King is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 2.136 billion Musang Kingians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Musang Kingian economy, worth 87.2 trillion Durians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. 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 40,809 Durians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Musang King, boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, and fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Musang King's national animal is the Musang King, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Musang King is ranked 121,324th in the world and 281st in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
