The Noble Republic of Mietkael is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Albert IV with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.767 billion Kaelians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Education, with Spirituality, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oxford. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.5%.

The very strong Kaelian economy, worth 61.0 trillion Kaelian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,531 Kaelian Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around New Oxford, drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, and recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mietkael's national animal is the Black Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Mietkael is ranked 126,105th in the world and 149th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
