|Leader||The Honorable Imperator|
The Free Land of Mertvie is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Honorable Imperator with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.956 billion Mertvii enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 35.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Mertviean economy, worth 166 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 56,219 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime is well under control. Mertvie's national animal is the Hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
