Republic of Mesque

Population8.696 billion

CapitalMesqe Mundi
LeaderKralj Đogovski


The Confederate of Republic of Mesque is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kralj Đogovski with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.696 billion Mesquites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mesqe Mundi. The average income tax rate is 31.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mesquite economy, worth a remarkable 2,075 trillion Rels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 238,663 Rels, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, government officials across Republic of Mesque are being "encouraged" to adopt Roosters to set an example for the populace, and an internet search for the word "bland" produces pictures of Kralj Đogovski. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Republic of Mesque's national animal is the Rooster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Republic of Mesque is ranked 2,724th in the world and 2nd in Liberty Democratic Alliance for Most Developed, scoring 97.66 on the Human Development Index.
