The Technically Free ♻ Land of Meropis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.982 billion Meropisians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anostos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,821 trillion Pompas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 323,741 Pompas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,289,186 per year while the poor average 54,762, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.

Nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Meropis's national animal is the Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Truth.

Meropis is ranked 1,136th in the world and 14th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 662.52 Bank.
