The Free Land of Maranth is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 285 million Maranthians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Maranthian economy, worth 3.53 trillion Maranthian aenoches 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 Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 12,383 Maranthian aenoches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, every week is blindness awareness week, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, and the government pours millions of Maranthian aenoches into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maranth's national animal is the Horned Ursus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maranth is ranked 113,357th in the world and 56th in Thegye for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,372.65 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
