The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Artanis Sylvari with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.812 billion Merodinians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Merodinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,928 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 196,573 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Ellesmera for fear of causing a fuss, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Merodin is ranked 185th in the world and 1st in The Sylvan Squad for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
