The Technically Free ♻ Land of Meropis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Leader with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.931 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 government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anostos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,878 trillion Pompas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 327,849 Pompas, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

It's scientifically provable that Meropisian guys don't know how to make a woman happy, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, record numbers of students are leaving school to enter the workforce, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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.

Meropis is ranked 181,277th in the world and 984th in Europe for Most Extreme, scoring 10.98 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
