The ENDORSE BEEPEE of Melicorium is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Stan Melix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.137 billion Americans 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, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 314 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 147,144 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", books are so highly regarded in Melicorium that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, and ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Melicorium's national animal is the bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Melicorium is ranked 207,861st in the world and 7,146th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 13,242.99 Standard Monetary Units.
