The Queen's State of Mekatina is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, remarkable for its burgeoning deer population. The democratic population of 24.169 billion Mekatinans 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 tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 8.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Mekatinan economy, worth 913 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,814 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, military funding has been stripped back, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and gambling is outlawed. Crime is relatively low. Mekatina's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Mekatina is ranked 89,431st in the world and 5th in World for Most Influential, scoring 160 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
