The Republic of Meadowfields is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mahata Roneik with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.742 billion Meadowfieldians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meadowfields City. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meadowfieldian economy, worth 212 trillion Meadowfieldian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 121,870 Meadowfieldian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Mahata Roneik to meetings with foreign heads of state, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime is totally unknown. Meadowfields's national animal is the blue whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Meadowfields is ranked 7,440th in the world and 408th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.72 percentage of bribes refused.
