The Mekwanint of Mekonn is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Fasillides Chrysópáti Aeolis II with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.948 billion Mekans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armentar. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mekan economy, worth 582 trillion Biris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,676 Biris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, and political detractors refer to Fasillides Chrysópáti Aeolis II as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mekonn's national animal is the Barbary Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mekonn is ranked 169,558th in the world and 45th in The Labyrinth for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.85 Missed References Per Hour.
