The Sultanate of Mhelon is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 700 million Mhelonites 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Mhelonite economy, worth 66.3 trillion Severed Ears a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,749 Severed Ears, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Mhelonites can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, and the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mhelon's national animal is the fungus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mhelon is ranked 69,340th in the world and 3,541st in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,378.47 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
