The Unholy Commonwealth of Melehan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Melia Volu with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.605 billion Melens enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melaris. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Melehanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,297 trillion Scales a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,337 Scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The news is showing footage of Melia Volu bullying an old man to the point of tears, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, rumor has it that Melia Volu has won three lotteries in a row, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melehan's national animal is the Amphiptere, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Existentialism.

Melehan is ranked 266,223rd in the world and 404th in Wintreath for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -388.79 on the Hayek Index.
