The Commonwealth of Merish Commonwealth is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 900 million Merish Commonwealthians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Merish City. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Merish Commonwealthian economy, worth 90.1 trillion kroons a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 100,149 kroons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
The newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, a nation-wide cull of Owls is in effect, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merish Commonwealth's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
