The Federal Republic of Mercannia is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.982 billion Mercannians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hedgebank. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mercannian economy, worth 560 trillion Xontos a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 112,455 Xontos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, hunters often become the hunted, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, and the tightness of border controls in Mercannia leave a little to be desired. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mercannia's national animal is the swan, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Mercannia is ranked 10,070th in the world and 17th in European Union for Rudest Citizens, with 111.55 insults per minute.
