LeaderElizabeth Port


The Kingdom of Mardessa is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Elizabeth Port with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.068 billion Mardessans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varlyn. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Mardessan economy, worth 80.2 trillion Florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 75,130 Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, and Elizabeth Port has just been declared ruler of Mardessa in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mardessa's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mardessa is ranked 223,842nd in the world and 10,289th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.49 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
