The Kingdom of Merconitonitopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Montebad II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, feral children, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.267 billion Merconites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, with Environment, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahmedag. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Merconite economy, worth a remarkable 5,937 trillion virtues a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 416,151 virtues, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The legal profession considers itself above the law, voodoo economists believe that feeding criminals to volcanoes will bring untold riches to Merconitonitopia, long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty, and the nation is famous for bravely sending wave after wave of its soldiers until the enemy runs out of bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merconitonitopia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 501st in the world and 71st in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 258.54 Bank.
