The Constitutional Monarchy of Holy Marcus Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Vincent Fritz II with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.736 billion Marcusians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenseigan. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marcusian economy, worth 806 trillion Vinzes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,234 Vinzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, casino tax breaks are even bigger than their jackpots, and children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Marcus Empire's national animal is the Marcusian Tiger Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Holy Marcus Empire is ranked 36,781st in the world and 1,921st in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70.86 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
