The Hikūmeta Gel of Mehrabad is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Birźvebir Nas Qazi Mohammad with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.554 billion Mehrabadis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piranshahr. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Mehrabadi economy, worth a remarkable 3,012 trillion Dinars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is an amazing 206,979 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are only allowed to view government-approved TV shows, the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, and it's rare to find an unchewed pencil. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mehrabad's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Yazdānism.

Mehrabad is ranked 240,611th in the world and 893rd in The Communist Bloc for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -29.34 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
