Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Unified City-States of Maraque is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Whirnak with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.224 billion Maraqueans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tærak. The average income tax rate is 27.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tsvarchivan economy, worth a remarkable 3,942 trillion Lachkris a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 144,808 Lachkris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangness and Sorcery, school history books often refer to King Whirnak as "that imperialist pig dog", the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime is totally unknown. Maraque's national animal is the Tsvarchivan white lioness, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Xanthaiyanism.

Maraque is ranked 80,147th in the world and 73rd in Atlantian Oceania for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.88 Crimes Per Hour.
