The Empire of Methor is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 116 million Methorians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.0%.

The powerhouse Methorian economy, worth 9.66 trillion Obamium-237s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,299 Obamium-237s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 261,631 per year while the poor average 20,306, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Methor's national animal is the yUMMY, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Methor is ranked 141,177th in the world and 7,109th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 26.26 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
