The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.99 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.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Merodinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,317 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 188,524 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces. Crime is totally unknown. Merodin's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Merodin is ranked 4th in Orias and 110,671st in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
