Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.684 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Merodinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,459 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 189,933 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Phoenixes have more rights than the average citizen, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, and the government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime. Crime is totally unknown. Merodin's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Merodin is ranked 3rd in Orias and 70,142nd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 69 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
