The Queen's State of Markland Battle Harbor is a colossal, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.61 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 minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Commerce. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6%. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry.

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, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Markland Battle Harbor's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the betale.

Markland Battle Harbor is ranked 222nd in the Mars and 51,412th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 2 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
