The Federal Republic of Medetas is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sir Evert Gray with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.045 billion Medetians 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, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Osprant. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Medetian economy, worth 382 trillion notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 125,516 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, the Medetian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime is totally unknown. Medetas's national animal is the loon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Medetas is ranked 218,561st in the world and 857th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -330.38 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
