The Dictatorship of Meridiniem is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 202 million Meridiniemians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 8.9%.

The very strong Meridiniemian economy, worth 14.1 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 69,939 guilders, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the government seizes all major gold finds, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meridiniem's national animal is the Fennec Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Meridiniem is ranked 79,728th in the world and 5th in Imperium of Bread for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 149,967 Standard Monetary Units.
