The Federal Republic of Megolavania is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 404 million Megolavanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sansania. The average income tax rate is 27.0%.

The all-consuming Megolavanian economy, worth 47.3 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 117,169 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Megolavania's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Megolavania is ranked 91,918th in the world and 3,584th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 58.89 on the Hayek Index.
