The Dictatorship of Myness is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Dominus with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.751 billion Mynessians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mypolis. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Mynessic economy, worth 368 trillion mynors a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,552 mynors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, Mynessic doors require a Ph.D. to open, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and a shocking number of estate planners are beneficiaries of their clients' wills. 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 266,583rd in the world and 10,563rd in the South Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -24.47 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
