The Federation of Metruiaty is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and flagrant waste-dumping. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.625 billion Metruiatyians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Metruiatyian economy, worth 247 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,327 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 709,045 per year while the poor average 3,597, a ratio of 197 to 1.

Suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, and some Metruiatyian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Metruiaty's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Metruiaty is ranked 32,804th in the world and 22nd in Artificial Solar System for Smartest Citizens, with 45.94 quips per hour.
