The Osean Confederation State of Minuda is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andrew Halendraff with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.942 billion Minudians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cohorse. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Minudian economy, worth 895 trillion OSEAN Standard Units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 227,186 OSEAN Standard Units, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 653,242 per year while the poor average 62,793, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Andrew Halendraff has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, Minudians seem to be catching more chills, and a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minuda's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Null.

Minuda is ranked 5,653rd in the world and 321st in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,361.17 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
