The Hungry Watame of Memester is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Green Hoodie Man probably with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.417 billion Memesterians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grünberg an der Haven. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Memesterian economy, worth 139 trillion Memesterian Memebuxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 98,509 Memesterian Memebuxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking what someone does for a living is considered a faux pax for being potentially jobist, gossip magazines have pictures of Green Hoodie Man probably sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories, and citizens who want to celebrate the holidays generally deck the halls with old newspaper trimmings and dirty socks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Memester's national animal is the Advancian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is whatever is inside of Mutsuki's bag idk.

Memester is ranked 84,453rd in the world and 3,964th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,724.44 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
