The Macedonian Region of Meglen is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 36.014 billion Meglenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Meglenian economy, worth 699 trillion denars 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, highly specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Cheese Exports, 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 19,428 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meglen's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Meglen is ranked 161,346th in the world and 1st in Makedonia for Most Patriotic, with 7.35 flags saluted per person per day.
