The Unholy Commonwealth of Melehan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Melia Volu with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.224 billion Melens enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melaris. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Melehanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,893 trillion Scales a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,904 Scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The news is showing footage of Melia Volu bullying an old man to the point of tears, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, rumor has it that Melia Volu has won three lotteries in a row, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melehan's national animal is the Amphiptere, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Existentialism.

Melehan is ranked 3,160th in the world and 9th in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 96.35 on the Human Development Index.
