Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of The Commune of Meddle is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Comrade with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 11.459 billion Meddlean Community Members are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hazopia. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The large but sluggish Meddlean Commune economy, worth 690 trillion Wolds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 60,258 Wolds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, bike rage is all the rage, homophobia is off the menu, and The Commune of Meddle's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Commune of Meddle's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Commune of Meddle is ranked 147,236th in the world and 53rd in USSR for Fattest Citizens, with 4.46 Obesity Rate.
