The Dictatorship of Meltair City is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 505 million Meltairans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meltair City. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Meltairan economy, worth 31.4 trillion ration notes 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 62,273 ration notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

People who question what bunker construction has to do with economic reform tend to disappear, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meltair City's national animal is the Cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Meltair City is ranked 192,225th in the world and 24th in Greater Necanica for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.87 Crimes Per Hour.
