The Commonwealth of Marcene is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lethke with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.143 billion Marceneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marcene City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Marcenean economy, worth a remarkable 1,276 trillion Marcens a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 79,095 Marcens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Marcene isn't what it used to be, calling out of the blue has become taboo, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and more and more people are signing up for the government party. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marcene's national animal is the Marcenean Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Marcene is ranked 255,091st in the world and 8,058th in Osiris for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -36.55 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
