The Republic of Maricentria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 611 million Maricentrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maurbs. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Maricentrian economy, worth 41.2 trillion Marcs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 67,417 Marcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, and pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maricentria's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maricentria is ranked 26,047th in the world and 805th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,806.19 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
