The Consitutional Dominion of Meaurbe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Minister President Sandiego with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.302 billion Meaurbians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northminister. The average income tax rate is 49.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meaurbian economy, worth 494 trillion Moedas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,911 Moedas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage girls in knee-length surfer shorts have become a cultural icon of Meaurbe, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meaurbe's national animal is the Polka Otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Meaurbe is ranked 122,861st in the world and 258th in The Free Nations Region for Most Pro-Market, scoring 40.44 on the Rand Index.
