The Free Land of Melva is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Great Mega Mega with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 7.906 billion Melvaniacs are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mega Melva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.8%.

The frighteningly efficient melvaniatic economy, worth a remarkable 1,320 trillion stones a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 167,046 stones, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 717,904 per year while the poor average 24,839, a ratio of 28.9 to 1.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown. Melva's national animal is the awesome bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is whatever Melvaniacs prefer.

Melva is ranked 12,020th in the world and 2nd in United Splendid Marmotlands for Highest Economic Output, with 1,320 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
