The Kingdom of Merulla is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 344 million Merulleans 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poseidonia. The average income tax rate is 18.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Merullean economy, worth 37.5 trillion Tridents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,955 Tridents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merulla's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Merulla is ranked 70,870th in the world and 8th in Great Aureania for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 2,810.78 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
