Mergany is a federal sovereign state in Eastern Uletha and an active member of the Eastern Ulethan Organisation of Independent Allies and Assembly of Nations. In the 21st century, Mergany is a great power and has one of the world's largest economies in the sector of high technology. As a global leader in several industrial and technological sectors, it plays an important role in export and import of goods. Mergany is a highly developed country with a very high standard of living sustained by a skilled and productive society. It upholds a social security and universal health care system, environmental protection and a tuition-free university education.


The name of Mergany derives from the Romantian expression "mergari", which means "to trade". The ending "-ny" was established later on and stems from Ingerish. The name came up after Kalmish settlements have been established in Eastern Uletha in the 14th century.


Discoveries shows that ancient humans were present in Mergany at least 350 000 years ago. One of the oldest complete hunting weapon found anywhere in the world was discovered in northern Holswig. This is the settlement of most Reisjian Tribes.

Mergany is the southernmost of a number of countries that form the Scythe of Uletha in Eastern Uletha, with Viljanni and Eshein bordering to the south, UL013, UL012 and UL011 to the east and Helvetiany, Arcantonie, UL044, UL041 and Otma to the north. It is also bordered by the Darcodian Sea and the Gulf of Volta. It lies mostly between latitudes 43.5° and 48.5° N and longitudes 129° and 133° E. Mergany has five oversea territories on three continents, each named after the largest town:

Exclusive economic zone

The exclusive economic zone of Mergany (OGFmapicon.png map) is the 200 nautical miles sea zone (measured from the coast line) prescribed by the 19?? AN Convention on the Law of the Sea over which each state has special rights regarding the exploration and use of marine resources, including energy production from water and wind.


The island is dominated by an oceanic climate with quite narrow temperature differences between seasons. Thus the temperature varies with the seasons seldom dropping below −10°C or rising above 30°C. The prevailing wind is from the east and bears frequent spells of mild and wet weather from the Asperic Ocean, although the western parts are mostly sheltered from this wind since the majority of the rain falls over the eastern regions the western parts are therefore the driest. Rainfall occurs year-round, with no consistent dry season. The winters often are mild, especially at the western coasts. Summers are warmest in the west of Mergany, being closest to the Darcodian Sea. Heavy snowfall are seldom in winter due to the lack of high ground.

The flag of Mergany
The flag of Mergany or Mergan flag (Mergan: Merganische Flagge) consists of the three national colors of Mergany
  • gold (RGB: 255,255,0; Web color: #FFFF00),
  • red (RGB: 225,0,0; Web color: #E10000) and
  • black (RGB: 0,0,0; Web color: #000000)

(Mergan: Gold-Rot-Schwarz) arranged in form of a spiral. Its center shows three black leopards, each with a red tongue, on top of each other on gold background. The black leopards on gold ground stem from the Dynasty of Wirtembreg. The spiral shape can be interpreted as an allusion to waves of the sea surrounding the Mergan islands. Mergany's flag was first adopted as the national flag in 1832, but details have been modified several times until 1921, when the current flag was created.
