The Tyrants of East Mudfish is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by First Minister Festus McDunkel with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.741 billion East Mudfishians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Inkytown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.3%.

The frighteningly efficient East Mudfishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,573 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,486 Pesos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 418,800 per year while the poor average 40,812, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones, most academic research has ground to a halt, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. East Mudfish's national animal is the Eastern Mudfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Muddlism.

East Mudfish is ranked 44,231st in the world and 35th in Failure for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,220.67 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
