The United Kingdom of Marginia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Bartholomew with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 15.412 billion Marginians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Spirituality, with Law & Order, Education, and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castellonia. The average income tax rate is 43.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Marginian economy, worth a remarkable 1,177 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 76,424 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, the newest shade developed by Marginia's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marginia's national animal is the Marginian walrus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Marginia.

Marginia is ranked 29,145th in the world and 1,684th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 67.52 on the Human Development Index.
