The Melon of Melons is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Melon Boi with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.657 billion Melons 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 Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melonsville. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Melon economy, worth a remarkable 1,076 trillion Skyrims a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,693 Skyrims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melons's national animal is the Melon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Melonism.

Melons is ranked 14,465th in the world and 4th in Just relax for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,975.88 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
