The Federal Republic of Minorica is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 161 million Minoricans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 15.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Minorican economy, worth 8.22 trillion Minorican Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,064 Minorican Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, North African hedgehog sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, home renovation shows are increasingly popular, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Minorica's national animal is the North African hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Minorica is ranked 88,764th in the world and 33rd in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.38 on the Rand Index.
