The Democratic Republic of Merftastic is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate population of 1.327 billion Merftasticians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smorfmorf. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Merftastician economy, worth 67.7 trillion Chocolate Monkeys a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,045 Chocolate Monkeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commemoration of the Great The Confederation of The Rhine War costs almost as much as the war itself, the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, and when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merftastic's national animal is the Albino Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Merftastic is ranked 17,600th in the world and 1st in The Confederation of The Rhine for Most Inclusive, scoring 143.53 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
