The Republic of Mercedini is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dimitry Larmée with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.945 billion Mercedinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal 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 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mercedinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,953 trillion Mercedes a year, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,084 Mercedes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 119,688th in the world and 15th in Novapax for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 950.29 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
