The Constitutional Monarchy of Maricoen is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Dimitri Morozov with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.489 billion Maricoenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marcosberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Maricoenian economy, worth 491 trillion Kpohas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 197,435 Kpohas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 882,524 per year while the poor average 27,394, a ratio of 32.2 to 1.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maricoen's national animal is the European Bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Maricoen is ranked 7,265th in the world and 14th in Anteria for Most Developed, scoring 92.07 on the Human Development Index.
