The Dictatorship of Modelna is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.445 billion Modelnans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medenopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.7%.

The thriving Modelnan economy, worth 132 trillion Modroes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,673 Modroes, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign football clubs wave the Modelnan flag before every game, Leader is the self-declared God of all Modelna, the nation's new currency features full-length portraits of Leader in ermine and velvet garb, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Modelna. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Modelna's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Modelna is ranked 72,328th in the world and 2,672nd in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.5 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
