The Imperial Commonwealth of Mesogiria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mother-President von Callay with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.743 billion Mesogirians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federal City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Mesogirian economy, worth a remarkable 5,432 trillion silver dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 289,862 silver dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,882,697 per year while the poor average 17,785, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mesogiria's national animal is the hedgehog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Not Being a Jerk to Your Fellow Man.

Mesogiria is ranked 7,398th in the world and 12th in Equilism for Largest Governments, scoring 38.87 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
