Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.432 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Port. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Gambling and Beef-Based Agriculture.
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, its national religion is Riverwind Polytheism, and its currency is the Slante.
