The Brennanndi Ríki of Muspellheim is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 36.567 billion Muspellsons are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muspell. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Muspellheimian economy, worth an astonishing 23,810 trillion ISSP Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 651,156 ISSP Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,196,422 per year while the poor average 142,901, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Muspellheim's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Surtr-worship.

Muspellheim is ranked 24,069th in the world and 5th in Scandinavia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 71.89 on the Rand Index.
