LeaderThe Honorable Imperator


The Free Land of Mertvie is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Honorable Imperator with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.063 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, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 40.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mertviean economy, worth 117 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 significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 57,167 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', large areas of Mertvie are not accessible by the public, and criminals are thrown to the Hounds to repay their debt to society. 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 30,759th in the world and 1,446th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,086.24 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
