The Grey Wardens of Merlins clone Merlinda from Universe 63 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Merlin with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion.

Average income is an impressive 180,614 Manas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation is compulsory, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, and teenagers sit around on their butts all day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Merlins clone Merlinda from Universe 63's national animal is the Undead, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Some weird Squid Thing.
