The Constitutional Monarchy of Metropobia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 535 million Metropobians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megapolis. The average income tax rate is 39.4%.

The thriving Metropobian economy, worth 47.8 trillion Mezes 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, 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 89,354 Mezes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader is worshipped as a god, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Metropobia's national animal is the Metropobian Beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Metropobia is ranked 178,577th in the world and 33rd in Liberty Democratic Alliance for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.49 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
