The Most Serene Republic of Missionia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 379 million Missionians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Missionian economy, worth 14.0 trillion shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 37,020 shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, Missionians are fixin' ta comma any way they wanna, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame. Crime is totally unknown. Missionia's national animal is the ghost, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Missionia is ranked 114,315th in the world and 3,998th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 49.21 on the Human Development Index.
