The Monarchist Empire of Missouria is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Commander Augustus with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 877 million Missourians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newer Jeffersonia. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Missourian economy, worth 101 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 115,591 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Judges are all-powerful, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and contestants on Missouria's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Missouria's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Missouria is ranked 22,116th in the world and 28th in First World Order for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 14,865.61 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
