The Republic of Meadiastes is a very large, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 169 million Meadians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 37.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Meadiastesian economy, worth 10.2 trillion credits a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,583 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meadiastes's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Meadiastes is ranked 138,925th in the world and 5,463rd in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 10.1 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
