The Planetary Social Republic of Independent Mercury is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Overseer Cyote Rosevelt with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 1.528 billion Mercuryians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merctoria. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Independent Mercuryian economy, worth 188 trillion Mercuryian Silver Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 123,393 Mercuryian Silver Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Independent Mercury's national animal is the Space Rock and its national religion is Progression.

Independent Mercury is ranked 34,823rd in the world and 1,676th in Lazarus for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 15,379.75 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
