The area of Meta Cidade was a part of south pacific ocean. There were some islands without habitants. Claimed the land by refill since 1993 to extend those non-developed islands, the MC City (Cidade de Meta Cidade) established and the land refill has been continuing.
The original claimed area was funded by a landlord as a resort. The resort expanded as more habitants moved into the island. The formation of the social system synchronized with the expansion.
Meta Cidade stuggled for its development in the initiative period, most income relied on the tourism. The earned capitals were put into the infrastructure development, such as powerhouse, desalting plant and landfill again. By 1995, the original resort area (MC Capital) was far from the seashore and the staffs become the very first group of habitant in MC.
Because of scaled habitants on the island, various topics needed to be discussed. The scale was too large and too complicated to run as a corporation. The landlord transformed the mode of management. Habitants could discuss and vote for a group of people for management among them. In 1997, the area had its own basic infrastructure and the security forces already owned heavy arms. At this moment, the primitive society formed. The landlord become the king de fato.
The government was an absolute monarchy at the beginning the state established. The nomeclauted transform of the management was actually still the same as a corporation since 1997. The King was still called himself as the landlord (邦主). There were more and more people naturalized to Meta Cidade. However, the economy did not get benefit from the new group of labour force. The extra population skills could not pair up with the existed industries within the territory because of the narrow scale industies existed at that time. Also,the cruel law, for example an offender of theft ordinance might have sentenced capital punishment, made a lot of residents objection.
The very first political reform (Reforma política) happened in 2006. At that time, the king continued to call himself as landlord, but absolute monarchy was replaced by constitutioal monarchy. Kalu Istan (parliament/國民市議堂) established so that officials no longer reviewed the law by themselves. Judiciária (The judicary) separated from the administative section. The constitution also established at the same year. So, a milestone of separation of power becomes the core value of the nation since then.
The second wave of political reform was in 2009. The territory has been divided into 14 estados (states). There are 2 level of goverenments-National government and state government. All states have to execute national common regulations and acts. States can have their own regulations and laws without contraindication to national common regulations and acts. One exemption is the Gay marriage regulation in Estado do sol (Sun state) does not comply with national marriage act. Since 2010, national election (Eleção nacional) runs every 5 year to let the residents vote for 500 Kalu Istan seats and the prime minister/Chefe de MC/丞相, Chefe de MC can select cabinet members and all members are responsible for policy and administration. The MC government has 14 ministies

Social security (Capital police, Police/Kosome and Coast guard/ Costeira guarda) belongs to the homeland security.
The nation starts its economy by tourism. Since the null background of Meta Cidade, the defect of natural resources forces the nation focus on the teritary industry. With more intrastructure built, argiculture can be developed in the Estado de farme (Farm state), especially the state is a plain fleid that closes to the equator, sufficient sunshine can be provided for the growth of plant.
The solve of food problem allows MC to develop its industry. MC produces its buses at the time the nation exist. The lack of raw materials obstructs the development of heavy industries. So, the nation can only develop light industry with advanced skills involved such as pharmaceutial in the 20 century. In the 21 century, the nation becomes wealth enough due to export of its products. Also, precise investment in stock market helps the government earn assess for substain development. It becomes developing its heavy industry. In 2005, the 8º state, Estado da industária (industry state) established for grouping factories for production and form a supply chain.
The economy scale is dominated by the government. It is similar to Singapore that every industry can almost see the shadow of government by either directly involved through state-owned corporation or holding stocks of private corporation.
Cidade Amável is an international financial centre. It has a stock exchange market.
Issued by the Banco de MC, the MC Dólar is the official currency of Meta Cidade. The currency code DMC. Euro is popular used in the territory.
In the past, health care was managed by health department. The medical reform program in 2012 after the political reform upgraded the health department to ministry, and established Sistema Nacional de Saúde Meta Cidade, that similar to NHS UK or Fonasa in Chile. The government looks important on health and hygiene. In 2018, there are over 5000 hospitals and clinics within 15 estados. It also has a bureau to inspect the hygiene and cleansing in the community.
The predominant ethnic group in MC is Chinese: 40.6%, including those from SE Asia. There are also 10.3% Portuguese, including those from Brazil, 7% are Korean and Japanese, 3.1% White Eglish. The remainers are Papidas.
After the BRICKS and PIGS, the government believed it was a chance to promote a new language. And the backgroud was almost all residents can speak English fluently plus most can speak Cantonese, also the geographical location is close to the Latin America. The changes of national language naturally turned to Portuguese for the better trading with Brazil. This also related to a number of Portuguese-speakers live in the territory. Besides, a small group of Korean and people from SE Asia moved to the nation so that it ~is acceptable to use Korea and Malay in some cases.
The MC Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, though MC is a Catholic country. Catholic is the state reglion and enjoys national substuition. Over 50% of MC residents claimed to be Catholic, other major reglions are Buddhism and Taoism.

At the beginning of the foundation of the nation, the king looks important to the education. Since the nation has very few natural resources, the development of the nation must reply on proper knowledge and providing service to others.
Back to 1993, the nation has only primary schools and secondary schools. At that time, schools are English-medium teaching. Initially, students enrolled in the primary schools to study for 10 years and those students completed for limited secondary school seats based on their academic performance to study another 6 years. Based on the huge needs from the 1º generation. The very first university Standard & Herman University established in 1995. The scale is small. But soon a larger needs and schlors from overseas as well as those studied overseas returned back to help construct the nations. The second univerities Flower & Grass University established in the following year. Now, the nation has 13 universities.
Most schools are public-funded. They divide into 2 systems. One group is managed by the Ministério da educação and the others is managed by A autoridade de faculdade. Papidas only study in A autoridade de faculdade because of the special designated facilities for their physical adapation, such as the height of facilities and the teaching method.
