The United States of Muricia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 460 million Muricians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington District of Freedom. The average income tax rate is 28.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Murician economy, worth 43.4 trillion US Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 94,344 US Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, Muricia is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories, and the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Muricia's national animal is the Freedom Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Muricia is ranked 73,981st in the world and 1,469th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1.10 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
