The Card Carrying Villainess of Ming Minh is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Ming with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.217 billion Minhians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Hong Kong. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Minhian economy, worth 614 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 117,798 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 465,397 per year while the poor average 20,186, a ratio of 23.1 to 1.

People who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ming Minh's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ming Minh is ranked 210,901st in the world and 2nd in Astrali for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -9.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
