The Drone Collective of Maramos is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Unit-0A with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.256 billion Drones 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maramos Prime CPU Node. The average income tax rate is 77.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Maramosi economy, worth a remarkable 1,043 trillion Kilowatts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 166,777 Kilowatts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions, children have nightmares about the eerie red glow and constant whirring of newly-installed machines, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, and power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maramos's national animal is the Mining Drone, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Synthetic Universalism.

Maramos is ranked 74,918th in the world and 15th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Highest Drug Use, scoring 83.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
