The Neko Nation of Mestovakia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hōkūlani Kameāloha with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 17.256 billion Corporate Citizens 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaihōnoma. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mestovakian economy, worth a remarkable 2,756 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 159,754 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national water supply has entered detox, organ donation is compulsory, children fear compulsory visits to their spiritual advisors more than the dentist, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mestovakia's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Mestovakia is ranked 4,887th in the world and 131st in the Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.15 on the Human Development Index.
