The Holy Empire of Muscle is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Atrocious Aniki with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 18.433 billion Anikis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flexopolis. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Musclean economy, worth a remarkable 2,639 trillion Proteins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,185 Proteins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access, both criminals and civilians are DOA, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Muscle's national animal is the Aniki, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Muscle Worship.

Muscle is ranked 110,217th in the world and 1st in The Glorious Musclean Empire for Most Extreme, scoring 18.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
