The Grey Wardens of Merlins clone Merlinda from Universe 63 is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Merlin with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 5.031 billion Grey Wardens 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark City midst the Endless Void. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Warden economy, worth 908 trillion Manas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 180,603 Manas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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.
