The Amerion For Supreme Leader of Melicorium is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairman Stan Melix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 767 million Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cypress. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Melicorian economy, worth 104 trillion dollars 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 a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 impressive 136,703 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have tenure, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and Chairman Stan Melix is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests. Crime is totally unknown. Melicorium's national animal is the mourning dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Melicorium is ranked 13,162nd in the world and 376th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.63 on the Human Development Index.
