Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Unified City-States of Maraque is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Whirnak Darkaan with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 24.52 billion Maraqueans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tærak. The average income tax rate is 17.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tsvarchivan economy, worth a remarkable 3,432 trillion Lachkris a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,007 Lachkris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. Crime is totally unknown. Maraque's national animal is the Tsvarchivan white lioness, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Xanthaiyanism.

Maraque is ranked 188,288th in the world and 88th in Atlantian Oceania for Best Weather, with -85 Meters Of Sunlight.
