The Republic of Metamen is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grandmaster Ordea with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.328 billion Metamenians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpha Meta. The average income tax rate is 61.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Metamenian economy, worth 204 trillion Metacredits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 154,160 Metacredits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, children of nonreligious parents are often barred from school festival events, fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Metamen's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is All Faith.

Metamen is ranked 103,754th in the world and 4,782nd in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 45.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
