The Panorama of Mesdag is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by MrMesdag with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 28.177 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, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MesdagCity. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mesdagian economy, worth a remarkable 4,750 trillion Antilliaanse guldens a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 168,606 Antilliaanse guldens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government's suggestions box is curiously empty these days, the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", vaccinations are mandatory, and Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mesdag's national animal is the leeuw, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Mesdag is ranked 1,885th in the world and 53rd in Nederland for Most Stationary, with 2,944.70644872 Days.
