The Community of MELvi11e is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 852 million Melvers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Melver economy, worth 65.1 trillion melcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 76,361 melcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MELvi11e's national animal is the unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

MELvi11e is ranked 24,689th in the world and 767th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 55.12 quips per hour.
