The Glittery Cookie Queen of Minineenee is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Melisande Rahl with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 36.466 billion Minineeneeans 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dena. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Minineeneean economy, worth a remarkable 4,397 trillion Glitters a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,598 Glitters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, future leaders of Minineenee regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, and the Minineeneean delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minineenee's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Discordianism.

Minineenee is ranked 195,016th in the world and 5,175th in the West Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.22 weapons per person.
