The Federal Republic of Meridian Unity is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 502 million Meridian Unityians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Resurgem. The average income tax rate is 27.5%.

The all-consuming Meridian Unityian economy, worth 44.9 trillion Federal Bohners a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 89,521 Federal Bohners, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meridian Unity's national animal is the Lupusrubrum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Meridian Unity is ranked 18,357th in the world and 570th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,987.58 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
