The Dictatorship of Megatroid is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.838 billion Megatroidians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shelbyville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Megatroidian economy, worth a remarkable 3,446 trillion Inflations a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 291,144 Inflations, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime is totally unknown. Megatroid's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Megatroid is ranked 252nd in the world and 1st in The Union of Holy Trade States for Most Secular, with 99.2 Atheism Rate.
