The Wild Frontiers of The Sect Meces is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Randall Sto with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.169 billion Spacers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starbase Lambda. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sect Mecian economy, worth a remarkable 1,603 trillion Multi-Purpose Construction Materials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 223,701 Multi-Purpose Construction Materials, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Governor Randall Sto's wardrobe, Governor Randall Sto claims to be the epitome of family values, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sect Meces's national animal is the Rattlesnake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Stars.

The Sect Meces is ranked 4,645th in the world and 79th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 223,701.2 Standard Monetary Units.
