The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.956 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.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, Merodin's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. 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 2nd in Orias and 5,302nd in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Merodin is currently researching a cure.
