The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.875 billion Merodinians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Commerce and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and the government funds large training centres to turn Phoenixes into functioning members of society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merodin's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Silver Dollar.

Merodin is ranked 8th in Orias and 110,598th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -21 on the Hayek Index.
