The Empire of Uniand Mel Islands is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 664 million Islandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blauhausen. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Uniander economy, worth 54.2 trillion König Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,611 König Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uniand Mel Islands's national animal is the Lübener Adler, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Uniand Mel Islands is ranked 35,106th in the world and 71st in The League for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,975.02 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
