The Free Land of Mertvie is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.676 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 Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 37.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Mertviean economy, worth 82.7 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 49,347 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Mertvie are famed for their reasonable volume levels, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mertvie's national animal is the Hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mertvie is ranked 43,560th in the world and 2,035th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 125.85 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
