The Grand Republic of The Marians is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ri Cameron Martin XVIII with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.156 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reedus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture.
Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Marians's national animal is the Python, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Paganism, and its currency is the Krona.
