The Commune of Ramelia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Speaker Eriyaks Xalo with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.971 billion Rameliae are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramelium. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rameliae economy, worth a remarkable 1,557 trillion Ramelies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 173,586 Ramelies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, artists are pillars of society, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown. Ramelia's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Democracy.

Ramelia is ranked 44,010th in the world and 7th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Patriotic, with 21.53 flags saluted per person per day.
