The Republic of Metamen is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grandmaster Ordea with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.199 billion Metamenians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpha Meta. The average income tax rate is 58.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Metamenian economy, worth 182 trillion Metacredits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 152,580 Metacredits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, Metamenians believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Metamenians any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Metamen's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is All Faith.

Metamen is ranked 149,880th in the world and 7,505th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -11.4 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
