The Panorama of Mesdag is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by MrMesdag with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.853 billion Mesdagians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Social Policy, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MesdagCity. The average income tax rate is 89.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Mesdagian economy, worth a remarkable 3,212 trillion Antilliaanse guldens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 124,263 Antilliaanse guldens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are now allowed to discuss whether MrMesdag is the greatest ruler ever or simply the greatest ruler of this generation, all tariffs have been abolished, Mesdagian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of MrMesdag holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mesdag's national animal is the leeuw, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Mesdag is ranked 2,940th in the world and 20th in Nederland for Highest Economic Output, with 3,212 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
