The Unified Empire of Mersdon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Willem van Oranje with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.08 billion Mersidonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benedict-on-Sea. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Mersidonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,050 trillion Blue-Guldenmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 206,806 Blue-Guldenmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mersdon's national animal is the chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mersidonian Saints-Worship.

Mersdon is ranked 2,151st in the world and 4th in The Free Nations Region for Safest, scoring 140.42 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
