The Imperial Protectorate of Meulmania is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Imperial Regent with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful population of 24.872 billion Meulmanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Scottia. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meulmanian economy, worth a remarkable 8,559 trillion Meulmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 344,139 Meulmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Imperial Regent's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meulmania's national animal is the Great White Carp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cricket.

Meulmania is ranked 64,527th in the world and 10th in Australia for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,472.53 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
