The Federative Republic of Membatak is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by First Speaker Leah Jimenez with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.01 billion Membatakians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saro. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Membatakian economy, worth 514 trillion Takis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 128,271 Takis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, First Speaker Leah Jimenez is considering changing the Membatakian flag to one with more glitter, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Membatak's national animal is the Cockatiel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Membatak is ranked 8,734th in the world and 178th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 98.75 quips per hour.
