The Intermittent Republic of Murab is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Grand Optimist Iago XII with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.216 billion Murabians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Misery. The average income tax rate is 5.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Murabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,914 trillion New Groats a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 233,075 New Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, Murabians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Murab's national animal is the Ravening Sloth, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reformed Empirical Syncretism.

Murab is ranked 1,352nd in the world and 3rd in The Western Isles for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 220,489.56 Standard Monetary Units.
