The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.401 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 Law & Order 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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, Phoenix is one of the most popular forenames in Merodin, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. 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 34,581st in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
