The Armed Republic of Mellyland is a small, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 29 million Mellylandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Spirituality, with Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The powerhouse Mellylandian economy, worth 2.17 trillion Gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 74,713 Gils, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 438,739 per year while the poor average 5,938, a ratio of 73.9 to 1.

Obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Mellyland's national animal is the Telethia, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Mellyland is ranked 16,731st in the world and 1st in JermaSubs Nation for Highest Drug Use, scoring 114.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
