The Empire of Milvands is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 847 million Milvandsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 27.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Milvandsian economy, worth 75.7 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 89,420 Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, the might of the nation's air force has been deployed against people with sticks in boats, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, and government employees from Milvands dominate international lumberjack competitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Milvands's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Milvands is ranked 133,838th in the world and 5,339th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 32.31 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
