The G'day G'day G'day of Merlovich is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ali MacKillop with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.454 billion Merlovichans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melbourne. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Merlovichian economy, worth 520 trillion Merlovichan Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,831 Merlovichan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, gossip magazines have pictures of Ali MacKillop sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merlovich's national animal is the Kangaroo, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Christianity.

Merlovich is ranked 10,099th in the world and 270th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 92.91 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
