The Republic of Miratejo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Eusébio da Silva Ferreira with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.917 billion Miratejans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponta do Mato. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Miratejan economy, worth an astonishing 22,618 trillion bilhete da TSTS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 687,125 bilhete da TSTS, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,409,145 per year while the poor average 6,522, a ratio of 982 to 1.

The year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals", conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Miratejo's national animal is the koi fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Benfica.

Miratejo is ranked 210,269th in the world and 74th in Wysteria for Longest Average Lifespans, with 20.89 Years.
