The United Kingdom of Marginia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Bartholomew with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.902 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castellonia. The average income tax rate is 44.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Marginian economy, worth a remarkable 1,125 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 75,512 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

King Bartholomew's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. 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 16,980th in the world and 498th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
