The Theocratic Matriarchy of Holy Marsh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arsi'Elkon Luboski with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 32.321 billion Marshites 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, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mar'si. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Marshite economy, worth an astonishing 13,516 trillion Marshians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 418,208 Marshians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's counterintelligence budget is all up in the air, Marshism now admits men and women into its clergy, exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Holy Marsh's national animal is the Sparky, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Marshism.

Holy Marsh is ranked 207th in the world and 2nd in Greater Dienstad for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 147,915.2 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
