The Presidential Dictatorship of Miseria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Snow Miser with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.888 billion Misers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lumipunki. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Miserian economy, worth 365 trillion Miser Bucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,652 Miser Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miseria's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Secularism.

Miseria is ranked 128,959th in the world and 66th in The United Empires of Carson for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 832.23 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
