The Nationalism Leads To Fascism of Melicorium is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman Stan Melix with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.245 billion Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cypress. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Melicorian economy, worth 178 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 143,168 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, and the nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Melicorium's national animal is the mourning dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is state atheism.

Melicorium is ranked 159,482nd in the world and 5,850th in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -3.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
