The Republic of Mercedini is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dimitry Larmée with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.622 billion Mercedinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zoloroni. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mercedinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,409 trillion Mercedes a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,455 Mercedes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Dimitry Larmée's majority, it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, and a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Mercedinian politicians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mercedini's national animal is the Pug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mercedini is ranked 64,764th in the world and 4th in Novapax for Most Pro-Market, scoring 53.89 on the Rand Index.
