The Kingdom of Merconitonitopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Great One with an even hand, and renowned for its fear of technology, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.989 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, 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 3,688 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 335,690 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, a government program is underway to revitalize Merconitonitopia's beaches, and the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth. 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.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 136,136th in the world and 6,777th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 22.71 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
