The Great Kingdom of Merulla is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Arthur VII with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.52 billion Merulleans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poseidonia. The average income tax rate is 33.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Merullean economy, worth 197 trillion Tridents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 129,875 Tridents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, the roundel of the Merullean Air Force has become an internationally recognized symbol of destruction, the 'maybe not shock and awe' foreign policy initiative is showing promise, and subscribing to the Benevolence Society for Impoverished Leaders is an effective way to dodge the draft. 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, and its national religion is Secular State.

Merulla is ranked 36,245th in the world and 4th in Great Aureania for Most Armed, with 2.31 Weapons Per Person.
