The Great Kingdom of Merulla is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Arthur VII with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.537 billion Merulleans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poseidonia. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Merullean economy, worth 198 trillion Tridents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 128,982 Tridents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, Merullean novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about King Arthur VII, unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of King Arthur VII holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. 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 and its national religion is Secular State.

Merulla is ranked 18,740th in the world and 1st in Great Aureania for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,809.72 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
