The Great Union of Meridian

The Majesties Realm of The Great Union of Meridian is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ivy Warendrop with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.207 billion Meridians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Macross City. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Meridan economy, worth a remarkable 3,301 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 358,600 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, the fate of the world literally rests on Ivy Warendrop's fingers, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Great Union of Meridian's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Great Union of Meridian is ranked 200,374th in the world and 39th in The Universal Order of Nations for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 16,137.03 Standard Monetary Units.
