OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Queendom of Merevane is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 848 million Merevaneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hemeretria. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Merevanean economy, worth 53.3 trillion Vanes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,814 Vanes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Whaleball fields, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merevane's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Merevane is ranked 202,525th in the world and 7,865th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -78.54 on the Hayek Index.
