The Communal States of Medecion is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.664 billion Medecionians 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lanio City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Medecionian economy, worth 665 trillion Stirns 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 major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 181,654 Stirns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People boast about their low income on their dating profiles, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. Crime is totally unknown. Medecion's national animal is the Grasshopper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Medecion is ranked 2,711th in the world and 5th in Refugia for Most Developed, scoring 97.05 on the Human Development Index.
