The Dictatorship of Megatroid is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 14.306 billion Megatroidians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shelbyville. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Megatroidian economy, worth 633 trillion Inflations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 44,310 Inflations, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, and married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Megatroid's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Megatroid is ranked 31,322nd in the world and 1st in The Union of Holy Trade States for Most Developed, scoring 73.25 on the Human Development Index.
