The Twenty Four Free lands of Meropis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Leader with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.625 billion Meropisians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Big Place. The average income tax rate is 5.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth an astonishing 12,641 trillion Pompas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 513,354 Pompas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, government ministers have eclectic tastes in curtains, vehicle strikes into low bridges are on the increase, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Meropis's national animal is the Bombus Terrestris, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Truth.

Meropis is ranked 237,975th in the world and 920th in Europe for Fattest Citizens, with 7.78 Obesity Rate.
