The Panorama of Mesdag is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by MrMesdag with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, deadly medical pandemics, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.81 billion Mesdagians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MesdagCity. The average income tax rate is 92.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Mesdagian economy, worth a remarkable 5,786 trillion Antilliaanse guldens a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 176,378 Antilliaanse guldens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

The new classical revitalization of MesdagCity is expected to be completed sometime in the next century, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Mesdagian Space Agency. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mesdag's national animal is the leeuw, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Mesdag is ranked 932nd in the world and 2nd in Nederland for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 17,620.75 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
