The Man of Melle is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Niet mezelf with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working population of 15.565 billion Mellenaars have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Koekoekstraat 70. The average income tax rate is 75.7%.

The thriving Mellean economy, worth a remarkable 1,216 trillion Franks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 78,178 Franks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melle's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is De eenzaamheid.

Melle is ranked 109,339th in the world and 38th in Vlaanderen for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 47.69 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
