The Empire of Melvani is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jayesh Melvani with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.991 billion Melvanites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caelestis. The average income tax rate is 71.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Melvanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,894 trillion Trinkets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,385 Trinkets, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government asks not what you can do for your country but what you can do to tidy their country homes, those who cut young children are told to cut it out, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melvani's national animal is the Bluejay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Melvani is ranked 268,956th in the world and 32nd in Testregionia for Fattest Citizens, with 6.16 Obesity Rate.
