The Amerion For Delegate of Melicorium is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 741 million Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cypress. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Melicorian economy, worth 98.9 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 133,528 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, having skeletons in one's closet is no longer just a macabre idiom, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Melicorium's national animal is the mourning dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Melicorium is ranked 101,666th in the world and 2,542nd in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 74.30704966568 Days.
