The Queendom of Merevane is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Mere with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.025 billion Merevaneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hemeretria. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Merevanean economy, worth 139 trillion Vanes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,047 Vanes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merevane's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Paganism.

Merevane is ranked 242,208th in the world and 7,877th in the South Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
