The Queendom of Mariabronnia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Annora I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.258 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 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 1,061 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 169,588 apercus, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique, the government spends millions of tax apercus on vouchers to pay for expensive private schools, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, and teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Mariabronnia's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Isota.

Mariabronnia is ranked 42nd in Ravencroft and 110,501st in the world for Most Devout, scoring -67 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
