The Kingdom of Mervay is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Callista IV with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.817 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, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asteria. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Mervayian economy, worth 808 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 211,718 Albats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, the children of Mervay are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mervay's national animal is the Italian Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Mervay is ranked 4,492nd in the world and 2nd in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,974.64 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
