The United States of Mameluco is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fernando Alonso with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 18.87 billion Mamelucoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 60%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 368th in Europe and 112,270th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -148 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
