The Free Imperial City of Merzbach is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.729 billion Merzbachs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fraye Groysshtot. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Merzbach economy, worth 171 trillion Guldens a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,455 Guldens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, electricians spend more time in school than doctors, and Merzbach's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown. Merzbach's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Merzbach is ranked 76,373rd in the world and 20th in Refugia for Most Armed, with 0.34 Weapons Per Person.
