The Armed Republic of Meme-aria is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 593 million Meme-arians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 46.5%.

The strong Meme-arian economy, worth 35.5 trillion memes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,911 memes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

There is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, Bambi has been banned, and much of Meme-aria's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meme-aria's national animal is the narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Meme-aria is ranked 56,832nd in the world and 3,118th in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 90.85 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
