The Greater Imperial Union of The sovereign provinces of Mesha is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Generalissimo Beast Clarke with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.207 billion Meshans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Impereisium. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meshan economy, worth 494 trillion Meshan Muenits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 amazing 223,850 Meshan Muenits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, the tenet of free speech is held dear, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The sovereign provinces of Mesha's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The sovereign provinces of Mesha is ranked 6,050th in the world and 11th in Conch Kingdom for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,513.81 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
