The Community of Liberty of Megelan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prior Giuseppina Gabrielli with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.233 billion Meᵹelaneſe have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alba. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meᵹelaneſe economy, worth 722 trillion scudoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,789 scudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, school uniforms are compulsory, the moon's craters are more numerous every day, and small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Meᵹelaneſe sovereign territory. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Megelan's national animal is the half-woollen boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Pataria.

Megelan is ranked 58,797th in the world and 16th in Tyran for Nudest, with 150 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
