The Oriental Empire of Merlovich is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, avowedly heterosexual populace, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 753 million 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, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tousunai. The average income tax rate is 54.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Merlovichian economy, worth 95.5 trillion Tousunai Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 126,845 Tousunai Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Merlovichian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, and professional athletes can't see balls amid the deluge of advertisements. 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 Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Merlovich is ranked 122,853rd in the world and 5,478th in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 65.84 Workforce Participation Rate.
