The Democratic Republic of Malestedo is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 390 million Malestedoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malestedonia. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Malestedoan economy, worth 35.6 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,406 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malestedo's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Malestedo is ranked 5,541st in the world and 283rd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 127.36 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
