LeaderLeader sans underpants


The Rogue Nation of Melon feud is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader sans underpants with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.95 billion Melon feudians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of pOOtie-tOOt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Melon feudian economy, worth a remarkable 2,231 trillion wayners a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 203,780 wayners, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 640,043 per year while the poor average 49,677, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Melon feud is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, it's best to say "yes" if the arbiter asks "what are you, a moron?", and on hunt days the unpleasant peasant runs in lieu of the pheasant. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Melon feud's national animal is the mule, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is THE GARGANTUAN GREAT SPIRITS OF BEFORE T.

Melon feud is ranked 32,881st in the world and 755th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 64.89 on the Human Development Index.
