The Moral Marauders of Melon ia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Counselor Melon with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.49 billion Melonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agency Center. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Melon ian economy, worth 195 trillion Melons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,008 Melons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melon ia's national animal is the Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Church of the Most High Unicorn.

Melon ia is ranked 88,792nd in the world and 2nd in Region Name for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
