The Poppin' Potato of MERIZoC is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Khan Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.521 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 97.4%.

The large but underdeveloped Merrish economy, worth 673 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 58,501 Codums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Comic books avoid plot inconsistencies by removing the plot, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, and tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs. 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 148,675th in the world and 1st in Tofulinearity for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 27.38 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
