The Militariat Republic of Merlovich is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ali MacKillop with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 3.958 billion Merlovichans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melbourne. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Merlovichian economy, worth 607 trillion Merlovichan Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,591 Merlovichan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, posters on 'Merlovichian Values' advise against being proud of Merlovich, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merlovich's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Official Religion.

Merlovich is ranked 46,683rd in the world and 1,622nd in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 613.75 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
