The Seven Nations of Merka

Population2.014 billion



The Seven Nations of The Seven Nations of Merka is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.014 billion MERKANS 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arozpuma. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient MERKAN economy, worth 228 trillion Memes a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 113,215 Memes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories, and police escort anti-abortion activists to free speech cages if they try to express their views. Crime is totally unknown. The Seven Nations of Merka's national animal is the Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Seven Nations of Merka is ranked 75,805th in the world and 4,376th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 60.51 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
