The United States of Mameluco is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Fernando Alonso with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.392 billion Mamelucoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matrix City. The average income tax rate is 59%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Mameluco to be bombproof, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mameluco's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the mameluco.

Mameluco is ranked 229th in Europe and 79,577th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -8 on the Hayek Index.
