The Queen's State of Mekatina is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, remarkable for its burgeoning deer population. The democratic population of 23.703 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, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 8.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Mekatinan economy, worth 896 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 13,357th in the world and 2nd in World for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.23 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
