The Ancient Culture of Mes0p0tamia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Fred Schneider with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.94 billion Mesopotamians 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 Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.6%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Mesopotamian economy, worth 93.8 trillion neat excavations a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,905 neat excavations, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes all major gold finds, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mes0p0tamia's national animal is the student of ancient culture, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ismism.

Mes0p0tamia is ranked 162,573rd in the world and 2nd in Mesopotamia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 272.92 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
