The Kingdom of Meepootamia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 538 million Meeps are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meepopolis. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Meepy economy, worth 50.5 trillion moops a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,929 moops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, Leader seems to wear red a lot these days, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meepootamia's national animal is the meepoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Meepootamia is ranked 92,677th in the world and 44th in Nova Historiae for Highest Economic Output, with 50.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
