The Ancient Holy Lands of Merconitonitopia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by the Protector of the Light with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.484 billion Kiwis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Administration and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drekk Kause Pyo. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Merconite economy, worth a remarkable 2,728 trillion denars 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, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. 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 287,742 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, survivors receive aid from only the most environmentally-friendly transport, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, and calling dibs is an unalienable right. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merconitonitopia's national animal is the barnacle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Way of the Light.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 701st in the world and 23rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 13,732.26 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
