The Queen's State of Markland Battle Harbor is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.972 billion Markland Battle Harborians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The very strong Markland Battle Harborian economy, worth 230 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 33,056 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 320,508 per year while the poor average 164, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

The government is avowedly atheist, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, all tariffs have been abolished, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Markland Battle Harbor's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Markland Battle Harbor is ranked 566th in The Americas and 107,496th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 5 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
