The United Duchies of Mierria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Willem VI with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 9.476 billion Mierrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willemstad. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mierrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,084 trillion Sun Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,499 Sun Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, the well-to-do in The Writing Nook are never on time for important appointments, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders King Willem VI wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mierria's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Mierrian Church.

Mierria is ranked 155,120th in the world and 9th in The Writing Nook for Most Extreme, scoring 11.48 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
