The Holy Empire of Meepnovia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Commander Red with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 1.152 billion Meepnovians 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, although Administration, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meep City. The average income tax rate is 46.5%.

The thriving Meepnovian economy, worth 70.6 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,317 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and end-of-year production reports state that the revolution is really going with a bang. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meepnovia's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Meepnovia is ranked 107,215th in the world and 5,704th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 42.06 on the Hayek Index.
