The United Socialist States of Menechistan is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 715 million Menechistanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malchowgrad. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Menechistanian economy, worth 73.9 trillion Leis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,419 Leis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, children playing with walkie-talkies are told to 'get a job', the government would rather execute a hundred innocent men than let one guilty one appeal a verdict, and it is well recognised that you can't sustain communism without a bit of spirit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Menechistan's national animal is the Red Star, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Menechistan is ranked 60,321st in the world and 68th in Soviet Democracy for Most Income Equality, scoring 42.01 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
