The NPO High Inquisitor of Myrth is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Stavros Djubric with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.295 billion Myrthians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myrantos. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Myrthian economy, worth an astonishing 29,669 trillion Myrthan Souls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 774,752 Myrthan Souls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,224,259 per year while the poor average 7,382, a ratio of 978 to 1.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, the comic book series 'Stavros Djubric and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, and hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Myrth's national animal is the black dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Myrth is ranked 1,097th in the world and 32nd in the Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 27,585.29 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
