The Kingdom of Mervay is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Callista IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.811 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, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asteria. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mervayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,253 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 215,631 Albats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. 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 107,106th in the world and 3rd in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Most Authoritarian, with 617.29 milliStalins.
