The Principality of Mercandia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, enslaved workforce, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.5 billion Mercandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 26.4%.
The strong Mercandian economy, worth 214 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,997 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.
The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Mercandians, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mercandia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
