Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Domes of Meridiani Planum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Steven Dessler with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 20.787 billion Meridians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prometheus Dome. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Meridian economy, worth a remarkable 5,844 trillion libras a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 281,144 libras, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,725,882 per year while the poor average 1,398, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Meridiani Planum's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Eudaimonism.

Meridiani Planum is ranked 181,166th in the world and 369th in Capitalist Paradise for Longest Average Lifespans, with 24.26 Years.
