The Mort Union of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by House Rainey with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 12.185 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 16.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,142 trillion IM Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 257,928 IM Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 111,040th in the world and 3rd in Mount Olympus for Rudest Citizens, with 38.53 Insults Per Minute.
