The Holy Empire of Marabia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Dictator Marie with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.992 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marabesh City. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Marabian economy, worth 290 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, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 97,095 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and genetic researchers have been expelled. 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 37,492nd in the world and 2,073rd in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 65.79 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
