The Welcoming Delegation of The Melkotian Homeworld is a massive, safe nation, ruled by George Whitwell Parsons with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.848 billion Melkotians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tombstone. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Melkotian economy, worth 57.7 trillion Buoys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 11,894 Buoys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Melkotians, international tensions are high as The Melkotian Homeworld threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, village elders are often called in to interpret voting outcomes in Parliament, and TMH-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Melkotian Homeworld's national animal is the Cowboy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Melkotian Homeworld is ranked 241,626th in the world and 162nd in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Highest Drug Use, scoring 12.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
