Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Tyrant Worldfleet of Mekanta is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kareh math Izakto with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, rampant corporate plagiarism, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.082 billion Mekantans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Worldship Khiikzhe. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mekantan economy, worth a remarkable 4,149 trillion services a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 159,083 services, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 732,293 per year while the poor average 20,929, a ratio of 35.0 to 1.

Mekantan athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor, and perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mekanta's national animal is the proxy worm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mekantan Dominionism.

Mekanta is ranked 172,667th in the world and 108th in The Local Cluster for Longest Average Lifespans, with 31.05 Years.
