The Galactic Scientocracy of Mitropola is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Great Mitar The IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.004 billion Mitropolans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden Hills. The average income tax rate is 54.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Mitropolan economy, worth 227 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,438 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, all the playground's a stage for Mitropolan schoolchildren, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mitropola's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Supreme Christianity.

Mitropola is ranked 183,223rd in the world and 7,448th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.89 Obesity Rate.
