OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Kingdom of PlanetMercury is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Freddie Mercury with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.548 billion PlanetMercuries are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bulsara. The average income tax rate is 38.1%.

The frighteningly efficient PlanetMercuryian economy, worth 375 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 147,183 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Bulsara Times is sold out, studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", and school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PlanetMercury's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

PlanetMercury is ranked 13,200th in the world and 623rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 6,632.26 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
