The Empire of Melvani is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jayesh Melvani with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.301 billion Melvanites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caelestis. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Melvanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,350 trillion Trinkets a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 131,141 Trinkets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, replacement organs are grown in vats, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and the nation is currently revamping its entire education system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melvani's national animal is the Bluejay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Melvani is ranked 11,278th in the world and 3rd in Testregionia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 372.25 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
