The National-Sonacist Empire of Mes is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Ryan with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 14.946 billion Mesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Light Horizonte. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sonacist economy, worth a remarkable 5,424 trillion Meritums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 362,931 Meritums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, builders across Mes are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mes's national animal is the White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Solidaritism.

Mes is ranked 93rd in the world and 6th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 99.99 on the Human Development Index.
