The United Duchies of Mierria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Willem VI with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, devout population of 9.664 billion Mierrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willemstad. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mierrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,141 trillion Wuilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,109 Wuilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, nations that kill a Mierrian can expect a strongly worded letter, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mierria's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Mierrian Church.

Mierria is ranked 151,300th in the world and 51st in The Writing Nook for Most Pro-Market, scoring 27 on the Rand Index.
