The Punk State of Outer Mesa is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Vega Solaris with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 1.951 billion Witches are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athame. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Outer Mesan economy, worth 175 trillion Boneses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,021 Boneses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Outer Mesa is renowned for its lax gun laws, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, extreme political groups are outlawed, and there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outer Mesa's national animal is the Moth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Neo Paganism.

Outer Mesa is ranked 200,740th in the world and 267th in Spiritus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -66.32 on the Hayek Index.
