The Federal Republic of Megolavania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its vat-grown people, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.108 billion Megolavanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sansania. The average income tax rate is 59.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Megolavanian economy, worth 142 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 128,323 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the government funds large training centres to turn bears into functioning members of society, and Megolavania's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Megolavania's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Megolavania is ranked 16,588th in the world and 427th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 6,766.18 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
