The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.561 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 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, Merodin's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 3rd in Orias and 6,133rd in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
