Notes about Melvin Republic military:

Nearly all of the Melvin Republic’s military research and development is carried out by the MRAF. Its infantry weaponry, armored divisions, and navy all use existing technology. However, the airforce has been on the cutting edge of the world in means of mixing airplane velocity and sophisticated long-range weaponry. The entirety of the nation's "special operations funding" is currently paying for the advanced training of the F-35 pilots.

Culture

The atmosphere of the Melvin Republic is one that is based around money. The Charter of the nation itself proclaims that the government has a duty to provide the best economic economic circumstances possible. Unemployment is closely monitored by the government, and the streets are void of the homeless and weary. Nearly every citizen has a job and the majority of these are quite high paying, especially those working within the defense and technology industries. The majority of Melvinians have a college degree and nearly everyone owns a personal computer.

The populous is mostly devoid of compassion and partying is rare even amongst the younger generation. Most people stay inside their homes, watching the news or the stockmarket or surfing the internet. Patriotism is often displayed through the use of government flag, but lags in the hearts of the Republicans. During times of warfare, volunteering for the military is unheard of. The Melvin Republic must resort to high paying army-reserve contracts during peacetime to muster up a large army during war. This has caused a rift between the military and non-military of the nation. The civilians view the military as a high-price tool that should be utilized to create positive conditions for the government. The military personnel are less willing to go to war and generally believe that their duty is to protect the nation, not advance its interests.

The political atmosphere is hot with debate at all times, and the citizenry keep close tabs on the movements of its government as mandated by the Charter. Voting participation begins at the age of 16, and hovers around 95% of the total available voters. The current President of the Republic is Allie Landry, and she currently has a widespread cult of personality and has enjoyed over 80% approval ratings for the past 7 years. The national GDP growth rate has been positive her entire term so far, evidence that her suggested spending in research and development and education has been successful. They are also pleased with her military reform: the spending cuts on land-based weaponry allowed for a complete overhaul of the airforce, which may be the only thing the populous is patriotic about.
