The Kingdom of Merconitonitopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Montebad II with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 15.926 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 7,072 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 444,080 virtues, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, and commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains. 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 dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 322nd in the world and 20th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 96,536.55 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
