The Marina of The Mermaids is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 2.114 billion Mermaids are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 54.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Mermaid economy, worth 40.2 trillion Sea Shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 19,000 Sea Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Mermaids's national animal is the Blue Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Mermaids is ranked 230,756th in the world and 2nd in Devon for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.12 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
