The Mothmania of New Minerve is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 4.633 billion New Minerveans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vandalia. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Minervean economy, worth 478 trillion Scripts 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,189 Scripts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Minerve's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Unitarian Universalism.

New Minerve is ranked 11,365th in the world and 3rd in Icor for Most Secular, with 91.59 Atheism Rate.
