|Leader||King Arthur VII|
The Great Kingdom of Merulla is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Arthur VII with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.946 billion Merulleans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poseidonia. The average income tax rate is 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Merullean economy, worth 562 trillion Tridents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 142,477 Tridents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
All footpaths have tollbooths, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, arbitration is mightier than the sword, and returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.
