The Blue Bird of Miravana is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Oat with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.963 billion Miravanese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Lanton. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Miravanan economy, worth 474 trillion Miravanan Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 79,507 Miravanan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A bureaucratic fight over MIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations, atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miravana's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Miravana is ranked 145,051st in the world and 123rd in The Black Hawks for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.75 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
