|Leader||Sir Evert Gray|
The Federal Republic of Medetas is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sir Evert Gray with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.014 billion Medetians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Osprant. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Medetian economy, worth 74.3 trillion notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 73,235 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime is totally unknown. Medetas's national animal is the loon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
