Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Republic of Marsholm is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Premier Janmaren-Dion with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.7 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, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Port. The average income tax rate is 42.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marsholmian economy, worth 808 trillion Slantes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,986 Slantes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are gradually adapting to the alien premise of paying wages to their workers, expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. 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.

Marsholm is ranked 78,248th in the world and 113th in Unknown for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.86 on the Rand Index.
