The Kingdom of Merconitonitopia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Montebad II with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory vegetarianism, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 15.555 billion Mirkonites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, with Environment and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahmedag. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Mirkonite economy, worth a remarkable 6,805 trillion virtues a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 437,498 virtues, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orientation videos remind rookie female politicians that slaps on the bottom are perfectly acceptable forms of communication, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the term "Native Mirkonite" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merconitonitopia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 221,062nd in the world and 10,052nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2253.14 on the Hayek Index.
