Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Queendom of Mariabronnia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Annora I with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.361 billion Mariabronnians 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariabronn. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Mariabronnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 trillion apercus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 156,858 apercus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and troops clank into battle wearing antique suits of armour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Mariabronnia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Isota.

Mariabronnia is ranked 3rd in Fantasy Realms and 118,163rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -12 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
