The Techno Imperial Empire of Megistos is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Solace with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, vat-grown people, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.78 billion Mᴇgistians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Paix. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mᴇgistia economy, worth 391 trillion Frᴇies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 219,707 Frᴇies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, Emperor Solace's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, vegetarianism is compulsory, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime is totally unknown. Megistos's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Starlism.

Megistos is ranked 32,125th in the world and 382nd in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,684.55 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
