OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The State of Meldrum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.665 billion 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 concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although the Environment and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 54%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Retail industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Basket Weaving.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, Meldrum is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meldrum's national animal is the buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dollar.

Meldrum is ranked 176th in Ancient Lands and 91,903rd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -1 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
