The People's Republic of Mirragblink is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 750 million Mirragblinkians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mirragblinkian economy, worth 65.8 trillion Flobs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 87,682 Flobs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Turtledogs' dominate wildlife preserves, one of the most popular models in Mirragblink has a scarred face and one working eye, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mirragblink's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Mirragblink is ranked 167,740th in the world and 4,552nd in Osiris for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
