Regional Influence: Enforcer


The Republic of Meep1and is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 751 million Meeps 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 relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meepburg. The average income tax rate is 18.5%.

The strong Meep economy, worth 40.2 trillion Weets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 53,467 Weets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Meepburg Times is sold out, the team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters, and the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meep1and's national animal is the Pickle, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Meep1and is ranked 59,035th in the world and 3rd in New Normandy for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 83.61 on the Hayek Index.
