The Democratic Republic of Malestedo is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Pickly martian with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 934 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 government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malestedonia. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Malestedoan economy, worth 90.4 trillion pounds a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 96,747 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, Pickly martian has just been declared ruler of Malestedo in an international press conference, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. 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 89,683rd in the world and 4,421st in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 55.28 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
