The Invisible Hand of Mercantana is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.655 billion Mercantese live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mercantese economy, worth a remarkable 3,107 trillion quons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 186,592 quons, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-quon charge on their phone bill, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, it's always rabbit season, and reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mercantana's national animal is the great beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mercantana is ranked 2,568th in the world and 5th in Lands End for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 12,334.64 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
