The Republic of Marcellinople is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Consul Marcus Aurelius with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory gun ownership.

State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 236,274 Denarii Marcellis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Marcellinople is ranked 10,507th in the world and 580th in Lazarus for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.3 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
