LeaderThe Dominus


The Dictatorship of Myness is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Dominus with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.538 billion Mynessians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mypolis. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mynessic economy, worth 95.7 trillion mynors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,210 mynors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Myness are blocked up with orders for new public loos, a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics, planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", and the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Myness is ranked 208,643rd in the world and 7,176th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 13,002.03 Standard Monetary Units.
