The Unified City-States of Maraque is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Whirnak with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.01 billion Maraqueans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, 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 5,562 trillion Lachkris a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,350 Lachkris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, Tsvarchivan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and the government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt. 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 253,885th in the world and 189th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.99 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
