The State of Minoa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Joana with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 19.055 billion Minoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. The average income tax rate is 24.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Minoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,931 trillion Minoan tala a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 101,353 Minoan tala, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, and the entire entry for Minoa in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless'. Crime is totally unknown. Minoa's national animal is the little owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Minoa is ranked 33,063rd in the world and 4th in Minoa for Safest, scoring 106.48 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
