Location: The East Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Militariat Republic of Merlovich is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ali MacKillop with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 3.946 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melbourne. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Merlovichian economy, worth 606 trillion Merlovichan Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,584 Merlovichan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, posters on 'Merlovichian Values' advise against being proud of Merlovich, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merlovich's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Official Religion.

Merlovich is ranked 114,263rd in the world and 4,387th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 523.38 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
