The Republic of Meriden is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kogitsunemaru with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.823 billion Saniwas are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honmaru. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Saniwan economy, worth a remarkable 3,225 trillion Kobans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 251,560 Kobans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world. Crime is totally unknown. Meriden's national animal is the Konnosuke, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Meriden is ranked 1,106th in the world and 2nd in Equilism for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 8,009.95 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
