The Queendom of Merevane is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Queen Mere with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.794 billion Merevaneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hemeretria. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Merevanean economy, worth 120 trillion Vanes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,442 Vanes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and conspiracy theorists allege Hemeretria's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merevane's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Paganism.

Merevane is ranked 217,636th in the world and 7,472nd in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 9,576.88 Standard Monetary Units.
