The Federal Republic of Ministanopolis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Susan MacDuff with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.465 billion Ministanopolites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strekhin. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ministanopolisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,027 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 230,069 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, and therapists can always squeeze in another house-call. Crime is totally unknown. Ministanopolis's national animal is the thrush, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ministanopolis is ranked 149,661st in the world and 809th in Europe for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -15.88 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
