The Mesolithic tribes of Merconitonitopia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the High Elder with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, enslaved workforce, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 9.919 billion Merconites 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 — prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Administration and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 3,096 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 and Tourism. 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 312,199 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trespassers entering the High Elder's office are immediately vaporized, all transmission towers have been temporarily diverted in order to establish dialogue with a comet, many friends and relatives of the High Elder have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and the nation is in perpetual campaign mode. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Merconitonitopia's national animal is the barnacle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is animism.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 182,244th in the world and 9,731st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -40 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
