The Free World of Mar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lurantis with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and daily referendums. The hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 15.017 billion Garudirens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akamin City. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Garudiren economy, worth a remarkable 4,250 trillion Favors a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 283,039 Favors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat, customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mar's national animal is the Red Panda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mar is ranked 176,897th in the world and 5,542nd in Osiris for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.93 Kickbacks Per Hour.
