A brief description: The Most Serene Republic of Melgibson is a tiny, pleasant nation, remarkable for its burgeoning woodland creature population. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Social Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 18%. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, followed by Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration.
Crime is moderate. Melgibson's national animal is the Small Woodland Creature and its currency is the Zrbtt.
If you decide to play, let me know. But the name "Melgibson" is now taken.
