The Lai RainŽ LiŽarda of Meadowfields is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Faindir with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.287 billion Tarathrim 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taras VarnŽ. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tarathrim economy, worth 310 trillion culuinas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,872 culuinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime is totally unknown. Meadowfields's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Vala Worship.

Meadowfields is ranked 19,568th in the world and 1,000th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 263.15 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
