Regional Influence: Enforcer


The Holy Empire of Mupland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 715 million Mups are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glorious Golden City of the Mup King. The average income tax rate is 61.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Mup economy, worth 19.0 trillion Paintings 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming and Cheese Exports. 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 26,551 Paintings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mupland has designated The Glorious Golden City of the Mup King as its capital city, a large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders, the sun rises an hour later on border communities, and it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mupland's national animal is the Painting, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mupland is ranked 9,514th in the world and 1st in New Normandy for Most Extreme, scoring 38.77 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
