The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5.293 billion 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 Social Welfare 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 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, artists are pillars of society, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. 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 Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the dollar.

Merodin is ranked 7th in Orias and 111,986th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
