The Cohorse Union Member State of Minuda is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alex Karpo with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.394 billion Minudians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, 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. The average income tax rate is 82.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Minudian economy, worth 988 trillion OSEAN Standard Units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 225,073 OSEAN Standard Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates, and sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high. 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 70,067th in the world and 3,080th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,731.56 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
