Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of The Commune of Meddle is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Comrade with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 10.114 billion Meddlean Community Members are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hazopia. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The large but sluggish Meddlean Commune economy, worth 578 trillion Wolds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 57,239 Wolds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Meddlean Community Members, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Commune of Meddle's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Commune of Meddle is ranked 1,103rd in the world and 10th in USSR for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 97.56 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
