The Union of New Merakh is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tziporah Surya with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.092 billion Merakhis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kesat. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The powerhouse Merakhi economy, worth 235 trillion sheqras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 112,680 sheqras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, it is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Merakh's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Merakh is ranked 159,188th in the world and 83rd in Grenada for Fattest Citizens, with 6.3 Obesity Rate.
