Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Meldrum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working population of 26.788 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 are ignored. 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 1,415 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 53,610th in the world and 48th in Ancient Lands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 33,164.67 Standard Monetary Units.
