The Atlantic Federation of Mestovakia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by My leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 15.731 billion Citizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of My capital. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient a Citizen economy, worth a remarkable 1,798 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 114,309 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, a driving license is obtained not by passing a test but by passing a brown envelope, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mestovakia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mestovakia is ranked 8,328th in the world and 204th in the Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,162.33 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
