The Ultimate Reverberant of Methor is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by King Julien with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 903 million Methorians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arx-Taenarius. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Methorian economy, worth 136 trillion Methoriums 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an impressive 151,625 Methoriums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 849,558 per year while the poor average 13,427, a ratio of 63.3 to 1.

Glamping Methorians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Methor's national animal is the Lemur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Methor is ranked 27,489th in the world and 1,464th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 108.81 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
