OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.73 billion Merodinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and International Aid receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. 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 3rd in Orias and 16,095th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
