The Unaptly named Empire of Mari de Juana is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dingusman with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.272 billion Marijuanis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Everything-proof bunker in REDACTED. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Marijuani economy, worth 136 trillion Cokains a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,214 Cokains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Dingusman, citizens often ask "what has information technology ever done for us?", and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime is totally unknown. Mari de Juana's national animal is the Fishy Chips, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Dingusman.

Mari de Juana is ranked 47,943rd in the world and 1,370th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 124.45 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
