The Empire of Mer Dieu is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Achille Sardou with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.332 billion Mer Dieuans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of De Gaulle. The average income tax rate is 16.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Mer Dieuan economy, worth 278 trillion Dalls a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 83,455 Dalls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Achille Sardou has just been declared ruler of Mer Dieu in an international press conference, new urban roads are threatening city parks, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime is totally unknown. Mer Dieu's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mer Dieu is ranked 63,402nd in the world and 2,555th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 54.5 on the Rand Index.
