The Free Domes of Meridiani Planum is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Steven Dessler with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 16.179 billion enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prometheus Dome. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and euthanasia is legal. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Meridiani Planum's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Eudaimonism, and its currency is the libra.

Meridiani Planum is ranked 6th in Laissez Faireholm and 1,159th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 78 Whatever.
