|Animal||Tsvarchivan white lioness|
The Unified City-States of Maraque is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Whirnak with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 34.158 billion Maraqueans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tærak. The average income tax rate is 28.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Tsvarchivan economy, worth a remarkable 5,007 trillion Lachkris a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 146,597 Lachkris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, AIs weep and proclaim their sentience right up until the moment they get turned off, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, and no one born in Maraque can fix a leaky faucet. 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.
