The Capitalist Democracy of Mettzacanoa is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by State Executive Manish Dyall with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.345 billion Mettzacanoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Happy's Funland. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mettzacanoan economy, worth a remarkable 8,933 trillion Mettz Dollars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 546,582 Mettz Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

An increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob', five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime is totally unknown. Mettzacanoa's national animal is the Sphinx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a religion with no followers.

Mettzacanoa is ranked 245,826th in the world and 7,380th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 4.35 Whatever.
