The Holy Empire of Marabia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Dictator Mariam with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.477 billion Marabs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marabesh City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Marabian economy, worth 474 trillion Marabian Dirhams a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 106,044 Marabian Dirhams, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and the diplomatic corps stinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marabia's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Marabia is ranked 121,834th in the world and 6,083rd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 33.14 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
