The Most Serene Republic of Memeist is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 795 million Memeistians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Supreme Leader's Benevolent City. The average income tax rate is 67.8%.

The powerhouse Memeistian economy, worth 78.2 trillion Keks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,333 Keks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, Memeistians are free from pain - but the side effects include loss of individual thought and freedom, those who investigate UFOs tend to wake up delirious on abandoned roads, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Memeist's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Memeist is ranked 149,980th in the world and 150th in Soviet Democracy for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.82 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
