The Holy Empire of Marabia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Dictator Marie with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.554 billion Marabs are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, 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. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Marabian economy, worth 343 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 96,533 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Sick days are on the rise, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, it is mandatory for actors to exit stage left, and marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal. 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 108,281st in the world and 5,920th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 34.87 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
