The Free Land of Mertvie is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Honorable Imperator with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.605 billion Mertvii enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 40.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mertviean economy, worth 164 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 Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 63,022 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, glamping Mertvii won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. 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 23,769th in the world and 1,172nd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.87 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
