The Neolithic Chiefdom of Mummerke is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Chief with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, hatred of cheese, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 23.464 billion Mummerkeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mummerke. The average income tax rate is 42.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mummerkean economy, worth 805 trillion nothings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 34,313 nothings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Chief is famed for giving great back rubs, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and bilingual Mummerkeans are viewed with suspicion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mummerke's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Paganism.

Mummerke is ranked 39,127th in the world and 22nd in The Democratic Commonwealth for Most Average, scoring 46.04 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
