The Kingdom of Merconitonitopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Montebad II with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, fear of technology, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 15.304 billion Merconites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Environment, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahmedag. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Merconite economy, worth a remarkable 6,628 trillion virtues a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 433,120 virtues, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doves that venture near secret military bases are routinely executed for espionage, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", above Merconitonitopia there is only sky and the fear of the unknown, and criticism of Montebad II is considered unpatriotic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merconitonitopia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 206,751st in the world and 9,128th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 1.42 Obesity Rate.
