The National-Sonacist Empire of Mes is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Ryan with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, humorless population of 14.265 billion Mesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Light Horizonte. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sonacist economy, worth a remarkable 5,169 trillion Meritums 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 362,422 Meritums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and business is banging at no-tell motels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mes's national animal is the White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Solidaritism.

Mes is ranked 130,456th in the world and 90th in Confederacy of Allied States for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 623.03 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
