The Sultanate of Mellywood is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 376 million Mellywoodians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starfleet City. The average income tax rate is 32.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Mellywoodian economy, worth 36.8 trillion platas 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 97,817 platas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, everyone apparently sends Leader hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Mellywood. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mellywood's national animal is the flying rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Mellywood is ranked 59,506th in the world and 2nd in Estados Autoritarios del Sur for Most Developed, scoring 62.51 on the Human Development Index.
