The MELICORIUM FOR LOCAL SOVIET of Melicorium is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairman and LC Candidate Stan Melix with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 909 million 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, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cypress. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Melicorian economy, worth 122 trillion votes 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 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 135,193 votes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. 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.

Melicorium is ranked 166,190th in the world and 5,903rd in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -56.78 on the Rand Index.
