The Dictatorship of Myness is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 286 million Mynessians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mypolis. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mynessic economy, worth 17.6 trillion mynors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 61,551 mynors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Mynessians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, the government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and military pistols are more secure than the national treasury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Myness's national animal is the calamander, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Myness is ranked 154,770th in the world and 5,610th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 34.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
