The Great Kingdom of Merulla is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Arthur VII with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.09 billion Merulleans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royal District of Poseidonia. The average income tax rate is 33.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Merullean economy, worth a remarkable 1,607 trillion Tridents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 198,741 Tridents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Weather forecasts are accurate but nobody has the bandwidth to view them, only the richest get to see out of their windows, Widow Twankey complains about being "cancelled", and anyone who sleeps in past 9am can be declared legally dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merulla's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Merulla is ranked 30,632nd in the world and 1st in Allied Nations Treaty Organization for Lowest Crime Rates, with 82.36 law-abiding acts per hour.
