The Empire of Uniand Mel Islands is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Grozsi Leopard Lohenköchen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, triple-decker prams, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.051 billion Islandians 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 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 Großstadt. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Islanders economy, worth 98.6 trillion König Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,780 König Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. 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 289,687th in the world and 624th in The League for Fattest Citizens, with 6.01 Obesity Rate.
