LeaderPresident Stan Melix


The ENDORSE BEEPEE of Melicorium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Stan Melix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.912 billion Americans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 278 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 145,882 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from President Stan Melix's rear echelons, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany President Stan Melix to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Melicorium's national animal is the CLEANUP, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Amerionism.

Melicorium is ranked 145,698th in the world and 4,846th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 25.09 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
