The Dictatorship of King Marsupial is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 24.195 billion King Marsupialians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient King Marsupialian economy, worth a remarkable 3,047 trillion eucaliptus leaves a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 125,956 eucaliptus leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-eucaliptus leaf charge on their phone bill, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and no one born in King Marsupial can fix a leaky faucet. Crime is totally unknown. King Marsupial's national animal is the koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

King Marsupial is ranked 167,007th in the world and 5,279th in Balder for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -30.07 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
