The Militant Benevolent Empire of Margaux is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor David Icron Travtor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, aversion to nipples, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.706 billion Margauxians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Triablo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Margauxian economy, worth 674 trillion Marguins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 249,311 Marguins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,076,062 per year while the poor average 36,797, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

The tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, and internet flame wars have been known to cause real-world casualties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Margaux's national animal is the Golden Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Citizens Choice.

Margaux is ranked 43,014th in the world and 548th in 10000 Islands for Longest Average Lifespans, with 80.25 years.
