The Dystopian Future of MinnesotanWasteland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jesse The Body Ventura with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.392 billion Minnesotans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Minneapolis. The average income tax rate is 53.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Wastelandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,896 trillion Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 464,325 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, children are seen fighting in the playground for bread scraps that fall out of diamond-encrusted lunchboxes, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. MinnesotanWasteland's national animal is the Swordfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Nudism.

MinnesotanWasteland is ranked 229,258th in the world and 2nd in Land of Prosperity for Least Corrupt Governments, with 2.47 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
