The Federal Republic of Mercannia is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.203 billion Mercannians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hedgebank. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mercannian economy, worth 786 trillion Xontos a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 126,822 Xontos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mercannia's national animal is the swan.

Mercannia is ranked 17,041st in the world and 26th in European Union for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,031.88 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
