The Constitutional Republic of Maletora is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.644 billion Maletorans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purutu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Maletoran economy, worth 459 trillion GDS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 173,755 GDS, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maletora's national animal is the Papuan Taipan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maletora is ranked 126,908th in the world and 5,106th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -32.14 on the Hayek Index.
