Population1.597 billion

LeaderThe Dominus


The Dictatorship of Myness is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Dominus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.597 billion Mynessians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mypolis. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mynessic economy, worth 101 trillion mynors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,517 mynors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and vacationing hippies and old ladies are regularly arrested for bringing back contraband basketry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Myness's national animal is the calamander, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Myness is ranked 240,425th in the world and 8,087th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -13.11 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
