Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Meldrum is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working population of 27.004 billion Meldrumians 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.

The enormous government prioritizes Welfare, with Environment, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Meldrumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,427 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 52,845 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, weathermen are being arrested for attempting to read the future, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, and children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meldrum's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Meldrum is ranked 90,858th in the world and 855th in Ancient Lands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,189.92 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
