Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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 ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.194 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, although Defense, Industry, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Merodinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,356 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 188,533 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Merodin, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', all footpaths have tollbooths, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime is totally unknown. Merodin's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Merodin is ranked 1st in Orias and 1,506th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
