The Federation of Mirza is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 538 million Mirzans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurelia. The average income tax rate is 54.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mirzan economy, worth 62.5 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,249 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime is totally unknown. Mirza's national animal is the crab, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mirza is ranked 65,186th in the world and 2,602nd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,216.53 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
