The Merona Republic

Population1.816 billion


CurrencyMerona Dollar
AnimalBlack Bear

The Unitary State of The Merona Republic is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its burgeoning Black Bear population. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.816 billion Meronians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iberville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.8%.

The strong Meronian economy, worth 101 trillion Merona Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 55,675 Merona Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, and The Merona Republic has designated Iberville as its capital city. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Merona Republic's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Merona Republic is ranked 152,221st in the world and 2nd in Terra Ceralis for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 14.8 Effective Tax Rate.
