The Technically Free ♻ Land of Meropis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, strictly enforced bedtime, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.651 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, with Education and Environment also on the agenda, 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 7.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,289 trillion Pompas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 299,674 Pompas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,103,571 per year while the poor average 57,483, a ratio of 19.2 to 1.
Punitive tariffs protect local industry, politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and in musicals everybody's a little bit racist. 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.
