The United States of Merlovich is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working population of 343 million Merlovichans 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prochny. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Merlovichian economy, worth 35.6 trillion Merlovichan Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,686 Merlovichan Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merlovich's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Merlovich is ranked 61,461st in the world and 2,833rd in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 89.54 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
