The Democracy of Merni is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Xaranas IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.959 billion Mernians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qersi. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mernian economy, worth 346 trillion Koras a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,860 Koras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, and separatists boast glistening offices on Qersi's Embassy Row. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merni's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Merni is ranked 125,349th in the world and 29th in The Labyrinth for Highest Drug Use, scoring 28.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
