The Allied States of Mendgremar is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 544 million Mendgremarians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mendgremar City. The average income tax rate is 33.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Mendgremarian economy, worth 55.0 trillion Mends a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 101,084 Mends, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Mendgremar, interest in globalism never flags, sex changes are routinely performed at Mendgremar's hospitals, and Mendgremar's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mendgremar's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mendgremar is ranked 92,355th in the world and 4,426th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 45.07 on the Hayek Index.
