The Technically Free ♻ Land of Meropis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.703 billion Meropisians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anostos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,469 trillion Pompas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 308,972 Pompas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,327,855 per year while the poor average 45,944, a ratio of 28.9 to 1.

Meropis isn't what it used to be, The Leader is rumored to have teleportation powers, an atheistic military rains fire and brimstone on faith-led nations, and Zombies are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way'. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Meropis's national animal is the Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Truth.

Meropis is ranked 212,500th in the world and 992nd in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.37 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
