Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Meldrum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working population of 26.255 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 Healthcare 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 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Meldrumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,403 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 53,470 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

All tariffs have been abolished, tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense, self-driving cars have been banned, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. 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 50,487th in the world and 600th in Ancient Lands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 82.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
