Mardis

The Republic of Mardis is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.223 billion Mardisians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The very strong Mardisian economy, worth 187 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 58,165 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 177,682 per year while the poor average 14,758, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mardis's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mardis is ranked 61,959th in the world and 67th in Thaecia for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,792.79 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
