The White Whistle of Miporin

The White Whistle of Miporin is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its closed borders, rum-swilling pirates, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 6.451 billion Miporinians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Spirituality. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Miporinian economy, worth 772 trillion Shells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 119,802 Shells, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolchildren's "what I did on my holidays" essays tend to be somewhat homogeneous, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Miporin. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Miporin's national animal is the Panzer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Miporin is ranked 25,472nd in the world and 54th in Yggdrasil for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,303.93 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
