The Desert People of Mirahge is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Chekman with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 28.869 billion Mirahgeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falorn. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Mirahgean economy, worth a remarkable 6,635 trillion Memes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 229,862 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats, and the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mirahge's national animal is the Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Grilled Cheese.

Mirahge is ranked 7,717th in the world and 13th in Canada for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 8,527.31 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
