The Republic of Melenavenia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lola Kulai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.196 billion Melenavenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Patricia. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Melenavenian economy, worth 781 trillion MDS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 150,459 MDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, it's best not to ask what goes into District Of Patricia Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melenavenia's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Melenavenia is ranked 267,966th in the world and 406th in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -19.82 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
