The Kingdom of Merconitonitopia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Great One with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.66 billion Merconites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, although Environment, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important. 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 4,162 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, extremely 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 357,015 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The bayonet is cutting-edge technology, citizens often ask "what has information technology ever done for us?", elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. 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 the Way of the Light.
