The Empire of Memenaide is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, avowedly heterosexual populace, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 669 million Memers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meme City. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Memenaidean economy, worth 59.8 trillion Memecoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,353 Memecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Meme City, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Meme City, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Memenaide's national animal is the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Memenaide is ranked 156,685th in the world and 7,830th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.88 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
