The Rational Republic of Mirchusko is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Temis Aenea with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.712 billion Mirchuskoites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapphrian City. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mirchuskoan economy, worth a remarkable 4,234 trillion eigencredits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 239,065 eigencredits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Superfoods are often seen as supervillains, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, every week is blindness awareness week, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime is totally unknown. Mirchusko's national animal is the heptapus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mirchusko is ranked 126,344th in the world and 931st in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 249 billion Standard Monetary Units.
