The Melon of Melons is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Melon Boi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.461 billion Melons 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, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melonsville. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Melon economy, worth a remarkable 1,011 trillion Skyrims a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,608 Skyrims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, the Melon Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and the children of Melons are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melons's national animal is the Melon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Melonism.

Melons is ranked 134,902nd in the world and 14th in Just relax for Most Armed, with 0.31 Weapons Per Person.
