The Federal Republic of Medetas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Evert Gray with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.31 billion Medetians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Osprant. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Medetian economy, worth 770 trillion notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 145,100 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visitors to Graffiti Warrens National Park are offered a complimentary tetanus vaccination, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Medetian weed picker are way up, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime is totally unknown. Medetas's national animal is the loon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Medetas is ranked 15,245th in the world and 219th in 10000 Islands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.01 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
