The Emirate of Memostan is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Januszek Cejrowski with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 869 million Memostanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Memograd. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Memostanian economy, worth 87.3 trillion Florins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,410 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Memostan's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Memostan is ranked 5,005th in the world and 1st in Greater Memlandian Reich for Most Influential, scoring 9,578 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
