The Democratic Republic of Merodin is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Artanis Nenharma with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.176 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Commerce and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, cars are banned from built-up areas, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. 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 7th in Orias and 102,230th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 28 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
