The Matriarchy of Liberal Mellobot is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.536 billion Liberal Mellobotians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, most citizens in Liberal Mellobot are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. Crime is totally unknown. Liberal Mellobot's national animal is the housecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the lefbot credit.

Liberal Mellobot is ranked 6th in Professor Hells Bot World and 1,609th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 113 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
