Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Matriarchy of Liberal Mellobot is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.848 billion Liberal Mellobotians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Liberal Mellobotian economy, worth 231 trillion lefbot credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 33,833 lefbot credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, a government program is underway to revitalize Liberal Mellobot's beaches, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Liberal Mellobot's national animal is the housecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Liberal Mellobot is ranked 25th in Professor Hells Bot World and 7,584th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
