The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.087 billion Merodinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 secondary priorities. 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.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and Merodin's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. 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 1st in Orias and 2,074th in the world for Safest, scoring 820.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
