The Social Democratic Union of Merriwhether is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Mɑru Sɑtsɑɛn'yɑk with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.876 billion Merriwhethran citizens love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turɛsɪmɑn't. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Merriwhetherian economy, worth a remarkable 4,308 trillion Lɑʃitsɑs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 271,367 Lɑʃitsɑs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lobster tastes best when it is red, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Merriwhetherian satellites can detect it, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merriwhether's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Merriwhether is ranked 105,331st in the world and 2nd in The Imperial Guard for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 550.12 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
