New Melita

Population6.774 billion

LeaderGovernor Robert Grall


The Colony of New Melita is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Governor Robert Grall with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed population of 6.774 billion Melitans 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 Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valletta. The average income tax rate is 31.9%.

The Melitan economy, worth 317 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,916 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million pound battlesuits, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, Governor Robert Grall tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Melita's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Catholicism.

New Melita is ranked 72,412th in the world and 1st in Alternate Earth for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,645.47 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
