Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of The Commune of Meddle is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Comrade with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and enforced nudity. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 10.984 billion Meddlean Community Members are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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 99.7%.

The large but sluggish Meddlean Commune economy, worth 645 trillion Wolds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 58,743 Wolds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, glamping Meddlean Community Members won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. 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 85,194th in the world and 57th in USSR for Highest Drug Use, scoring 64.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
