The 🅕🅡🅔🅔 🄻🄰🄽🄳 of Meropis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.568 billion Meropisians 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 relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Big Place. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Meropisian economy, worth a remarkable 8,128 trillion Pompas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 395,223 Pompas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,271,515 per year while the poor average 33,033, a ratio of 68.8 to 1.

Ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, and untold millions of Pompas are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Meropis's national animal is the Bombus terrestris, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Truth.

Meropis is ranked 37,446th in the world and 143rd in Europe for Highest Drug Use, scoring 102.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
