Population450 million



The Queendom of Merevane is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 450 million Merevaneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hemeretria. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Merevanean economy, worth 26.9 trillion Vanes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,671 Vanes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Worrywarts have started advocating for a paint ban, Leader's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', skateparks can be found in every city, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merevane's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Merevane is ranked 94,527th in the world and 2,159th in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 81.79207959748 Days.
