Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Marabia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Dictator Lykke with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.256 billion Marabs are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marabesh City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.4%.

The all-consuming Marabian economy, worth 211 trillion camels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,590 camels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 266,813 per year while the poor average 26,178, a ratio of 10.2 to 1.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Marabia after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, the question of 'what is Supreme Dictator Lykke's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, and Marabesh City is a police state during international summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 142,909th in the world and 7,155th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
