The Republic of Merlita is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 781 million Merlitans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 33.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Merlitan economy, worth 33.7 trillion Bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,149 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the Merlitan Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merlita's national animal is the Bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Merlita is ranked 69,689th in the world and 55th in Union of Allied States for Highest Poor Incomes, with 29,374.52 Standard Monetary Units.
