The Poppin' Potato of MERIZoC is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Khan Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its feral children, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.154 billion Merrans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bant Haal. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The large but underdeveloped Merrish economy, worth 543 trillion Codums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 59,398 Codums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, government policies change at the drop of a rabbit, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses. Crime is totally unknown. MERIZoC's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Tengrism.

MERIZoC is ranked 179,924th in the world and 1st in Tofulinearity for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -22.8 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
