The Federal Republic of Meridian Unity is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 703 million Meridian Unityians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Resurgem. The average income tax rate is 27.1%.
The all-consuming Meridian Unityian economy, worth 70.2 trillion Federal Bohners a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 99,871 Federal Bohners, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', and the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meridian Unity's national animal is the Lupusrubrum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
