The Magic and the Mystery of Merconitonitopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Montebad II with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 16.518 billion Mirkonites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, although Environment and Spirituality are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahmedag. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Mirkonite economy, worth a remarkable 7,349 trillion virtues a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 444,942 virtues, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and the nation is under martial law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merconitonitopia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 261st in the world and 18th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,997.2 Tourists Per Hour.
