Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The West African cereal farmers of Merconitonitopia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Quesdjo II with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.448 billion Merconites are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Defense, although Environment, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Administration and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drekk Kause Pyo. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Merconian economy, worth a remarkable 2,173 trillion cereals 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, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 257,287 cereals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Research into 'designer babies' is banned, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Merconian lands, the government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, and environmental officials dismiss uncontrolled wildfires burning down major cities as nature taking its course. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Merconitonitopia's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 31st in the world and 2nd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 477.03 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
