CurrencyMerlovichan Dollar

The Federation of Merlovich is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Julia Bishop with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.755 billion Merlovichans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hirane. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Merlovichan economy, worth a remarkable 1,493 trillion Merlovichan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,058 Merlovichan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Wallaby sacrifices, the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, tourists call Merlovichan beach towns "the fine coastline", and the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merlovich's national animal is the Wallaby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Merlovich is ranked 306,382nd in the world and 7,503rd in The East Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -29 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
