The Empire of Memski is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.141 billion Memians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 38.0%.

The Memskian economy, worth 42.7 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,428 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, Leader has just been declared ruler of Memski in an international press conference, and private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Memski's national animal is the Water-jet spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Memski is ranked 56,900th in the world and 2,162nd in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,847.7 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
