The Republic of Metamen is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Imperator Ordea with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.011 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpha Meta. The average income tax rate is 55.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Metamenian economy, worth 146 trillion Metacredits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 145,144 Metacredits, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, Imperator Ordea is the self-declared God of all Metamen, and students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50. 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 145,895th in the world and 8,082nd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.56 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
