Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population1.242 billion


The Republic of Mesenia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.242 billion Mesenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mesenian economy, worth 119 trillion Dracmas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,513 Dracmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, students do more community service than homework, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mesenia's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mesenia is ranked 10,412th in the world and 594th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,665.13 Tourists Per Hour.
