Mel Taruhm

Population1.249 billion


The Kingdom of Mel Taruhm is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The cynical population of 1.249 billion Mel Taruhmians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Mel Taruhmian economy, worth 40.7 trillion Bthindzchals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,594 Bthindzchals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fireworks and other big bangs are forbidden during the newest public holiday, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, the state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mel Taruhm's national animal is the Ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mel Taruhm is ranked 101,525th in the world and 9th in Near Terra for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
