The Brennanndi Ríki of Muspellheim is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 37.342 billion Muspellsons are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muspell. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Muspellheimian economy, worth an astonishing 24,670 trillion ISSP Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 660,675 ISSP Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,225,544 per year while the poor average 42,292, a ratio of 99.9 to 1.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, one can walk from one side of Muspell to the other without setting foot on Muspellheimian soil, and it needn't take a lot of snot and tears to fix a problem. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Muspellheim's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Surtr-worship.

Muspellheim is ranked 44th in the world and 2nd in Scandinavia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 21,976.26 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
