Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Mertvie is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.122 billion Mertvii have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Mertviean economy, worth 54.0 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 48,111 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Mertvie in an international press conference. Crime is well under control. Mertvie's national animal is the Hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mertvie is ranked 42,249th in the world and 1,982nd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 110.91 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
