The Brennanndi Ríki of Muspellheim is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by God-Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.134 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, with Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 25,197 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 660,766 ISSP Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,186,108 per year while the poor average 43,393, a ratio of 96.5 to 1.

It needn't take a lot of snot and tears to fix a problem, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, and serial killers are the country's biggest import. 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 81,893rd in the world and 31st in Scandinavia for Most Stationary, with 109.97186017352 Days.
