The Republic of Mesadora is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 331 million Mesadoranos are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dedeos. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mesadoran economy, worth 18.2 trillion Pentes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 55,028 Pentes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Posters on 'Mesadoran Values' advise against being proud of Mesadora, women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, holiday gift-giving is often peppered with songs of praise to morally-questionable televangelists, and the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mesadora's national animal is the Lionel Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mesadora is ranked 135,270th in the world and 242nd in Anteria for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 62.79 Workforce Participation Rate.
