The Queen's State of J E Marlowe is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.147 billion J E Marloweans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The very strong J E Marlowean economy, worth 538 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 40,943 betales, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Gambling is outlawed, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, J E Marlowe has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, and the Governor has just been declared ruler of J E Marlowe in an international press conference. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. J E Marlowe's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

J E Marlowe is ranked 98,154th in the world and 769th in Ancient Lands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
