Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Artanis Sylvari with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.013 billion Merodinians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Merodinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,969 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,713 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Ellesmera for fear of causing a fuss, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Merodin is ranked 77,657th in the world and 5th in The Sylvan Squad for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 701.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
