The Lai RainŽ LiŽarda of Meadowfields is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Faindir with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.281 billion Tarathrim are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taras VarnŽ. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tarathrim economy, worth 308 trillion culuinas 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,351 culuinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Babies are a small but significant export, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime is totally unknown. Meadowfields's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Vala Worship.

Meadowfields is ranked 24,966th in the world and 1,156th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,049.55 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
