The Republic of Minoteon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Hugh Jass with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.852 billion Minoteonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Minoteon. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Minoteonian economy, worth 280 trillion Pennytayshins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 151,412 Pennytayshins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, and the Minoteon Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minoteon's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Debilism.

Minoteon is ranked 23,942nd in the world and 1,265th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,297.27 Tourists Per Hour.
