The Principality of Merkez is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 596 million Merkezians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merkez. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Merkezian economy, worth 34.5 trillion Gold Coins 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 57,933 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Merkezian language, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merkez's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Merkez is ranked 76,725th in the world and 3,648th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
