The Technically Free ♻ Land of Meropis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 19.062 billion Meropisians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anostos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 6,631 trillion Pompas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 347,892 Pompas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,034,439 per year while the poor average 27,923, a ratio of 72.9 to 1.

The television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, and bank robbers always set aside 50% of the loot to pay off the judge. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Meropis's national animal is the Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Truth.

Meropis is ranked 1,374th in the world and 24th in Europe for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,905.76 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
