The Federation of Meretica is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 4.209 billion Mereticans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Meretican economy, worth 721 trillion Belecthorian Imperial Silver Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,401 Belecthorian Imperial Silver Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals", political clichés like "band-aid solutions" and "adrenaline shots to the economy" are headed for the dumpster, reflection is vital for badly behaved politicians, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meretica's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Belecthorian Societal Orthodoxy.

Meretica is ranked 246,724th in the world and 5,836th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 4.67 Obesity Rate.
