The Federal Republic of Mercannia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 611 million Mercannians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hedgebank. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.5%.

The powerhouse Mercannian economy, worth 43.6 trillion Xontos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 71,432 Xontos, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Mercannian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. 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 37,708th in the world and 50th in European Union for Most Cultured, scoring 71 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
