The Floral Collar of Meganium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 13.287 billion Meganiumians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — prioritizes Welfare, with Healthcare, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bark Town. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Meganiumian economy, worth 330 trillion Megas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 24,879 Megas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, heavy industry grinds to a halt as new equipment must be biked in, all footpaths have tollbooths, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meganium's national animal is the Meganium, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Meganium is ranked 71,731st in the world and 21st in Maltropian Puppet Confederacy for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 42 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
