The Kingdom of Mervay is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Queen Callista IV with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.717 billion Mervayans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asteria. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Mervayian economy, worth a remarkable 2,135 trillion Albats 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 219,765 Albats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mervay's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Mervay is ranked 23,071st in the world and 3rd in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Most Stationary, with 1,075.3790687014 days.
