The Queen's State of Marvin Alexander is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.06 billion, 5 million of whom are zombies, Marvin Alexanderians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 35%, but much higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.
The government is avowedly atheist, island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marvin Alexander's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, its national religion is none, and its currency is the betale.
