The Union of New Merakh is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tziporah Surya with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.935 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kesat. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The powerhouse Merakhi economy, worth 216 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 111,638 sheqras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. 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 165,701st in the world and 110th in Grenada for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.56 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
