Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Queen's State of Meldrum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 23.554 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, although Environment, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Meldrumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,277 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 54,215 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, discarded pennies litter the streets, none has been named as Meldrum's national religion, and all tariffs have been abolished. 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 23rd in Ancient Lands and 42,941st in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 4 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
