|Capital||New Merish City|
The Commonwealth of Merish Commonwealth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Great Pug with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, parental licensing program, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed population of 1.464 billion 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 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Merish Commonwealthian economy, worth 153 trillion kroons a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,012 kroons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, and sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors. 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.
