The Lai RainŽ LiŽarda of Meadowfields is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lord Faindir with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.695 billion Tarathrim are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taras VarnŽ. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tarathrim economy, worth 570 trillion culuinas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 154,367 culuinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, and people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals. Crime is totally unknown. Meadowfields's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Vala Worship.

Meadowfields is ranked 297,971st in the world and 9,016th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
