The Social Democratic Union of Merriwhether is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Maru Satsaen'yak with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.628 billion Merriwhethrans 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, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turesiman't. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Merriwhetherian economy, worth a remarkable 4,537 trillion Lashytsas 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 272,903 Lashytsas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia. 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 491st in the world and 1st in The Imperial Guard for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 14,566.1 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
