The Commonwealth of Mareyland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Martin Winslow with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.117 billion Mareylanders are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Spirituality, with Defense, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eureka. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The powerhouse Mareyland economy, worth 102 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 92,152 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 571,895 per year while the poor average 6,388, a ratio of 89.5 to 1.

Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, the government is slowly introducing social welfare programs, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mareyland's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mareyland is ranked 7,926th in the world and 1st in Mareyland My Mareyland for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 12,922.86 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
