The Federal Republic of Medetas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Evert Gray with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.569 billion Medetians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Osprant. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Medetian economy, worth 808 trillion notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 145,200 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, snitches get riches, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown. Medetas's national animal is the loon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Medetas is ranked 16,253rd in the world and 251st in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,834.16 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
