The People's Federation of Mezique is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Juan-Jérôme de la Vega with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.787 billion Mezis enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Lonenz. The average income tax rate is 66%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing industries.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Mezique's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Mezi Orthodox Catholicism, and its currency is the Botín.

Mezique is ranked 6th in Oceanside and 39,498th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -12 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
