The Federative Republic of Membatak is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Leah Jimenez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.361 billion Membatakians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saro Island. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Membatakian economy, worth 138 trillion Takis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,936 Takis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Membatakian flag qualifies you for citizenship, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Membatak's national animal is the Cockatiel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Membatak is ranked 235,560th in the world and 896th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 34.18 Whatever.
