The Premier of Mercia State is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Spokesman Richard with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.887 billion Mercians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Mercian Connection. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Mercian economy, worth a remarkable 1,822 trillion Mercs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,290 Mercs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mercia State's national animal is the Draught Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mercia State is ranked 120,019th in the world and 74th in USSD for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.89 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
