The Free Land of Meropis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.306 billion Meropisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anostos City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,098 trillion Pompas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Retail. Average income is an amazing 216,621 Pompas, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Flags are commonly used as bonfire kindling, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as the seat of government. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Meropis's national animal is the Ipotan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Meropis is ranked 137,133rd in the world and 230th in Forest for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -106.21 on the Hayek Index.
