The County of Mendocino is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 15.376 billion Mendocinoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ukiah. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Mendocinoan economy, worth 300 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 19,571 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All recreational drugs are legal, Mendocino has designated Ukiah as its capital city, a major religion has been named as Mendocino's national religion, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Mendocino in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mendocino's national animal is the worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mendocino is ranked 58,150th in the world and 6th in California for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.17 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
