The Technically Free ♻ Land of Meropis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.651 billion Meropisians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education 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 7.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,283 trillion Pompas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 299,327 Pompas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,108,396 per year while the poor average 56,920, a ratio of 19.5 to 1.
Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, and The Leader's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Anostos generates millions of views. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Meropis's national animal is the Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Truth.
