The Most Serene Republic of Missisquoi is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Citizen Thomas Banacek with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.203 billion Missisquoians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals prioritizes Social Policy, although Public Transport, Spirituality, and International Aid are also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caol Ila. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong Missisquoian economy, worth a remarkable 1,501 trillion Dirhams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 183,062 Dirhams, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 821,937 per year while the poor average 25,197, a ratio of 32.6 to 1.

It's never "just a game" with Missisquoian sports fans, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, Missisquoian farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, and an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Missisquoi's national animal is the Aswang, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Baseball.

Missisquoi is ranked 388th in the world and 1st in CISB for Fattest Citizens, with 83.32 Obesity Rate.
