The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5.27 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Commerce and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Skateparks can be found in every city, Merodin has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, Ellesmera is a police state during international summits, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. 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 Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the dollar.

Merodin is ranked 11th in Orias and 120,452nd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -1,139.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
