The Technically Free ♻ Land of Meropis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.088 billion Meropisians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anostos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,846 trillion Pompas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 323,198 Pompas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,394,967 per year while the poor average 47,702, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.
The nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and cute fluffy little The Leaders are increasingly popular exotic pets. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Meropis's national animal is the Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Truth.
