The State of Malevos is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vincent Klebb with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed population of 1.982 billion Malevosians 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 Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saiserich. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Malevosian economy, worth 350 trillion Malevons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,876 Malevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, old spellbooks are only useful as door-stops or toilet roll substitute, it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, and the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malevos's national animal is the Malevosian Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is De Jure Atheism.

Malevos is ranked 11,036th in the world and 107th in Europeia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,094.72 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
