The United Republic of Marsholm is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Premier Janmaren-Dion with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.594 billion Marsholmians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Industry, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Port. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Marsholmian economy, worth 812 trillion Slantes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 106,951 Slantes, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.
Abortions are routinely performed in Marsholm's hospitals, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marsholm's national animal is the Shikant'ana, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Riverwind Polytheism.
