The Last City of Marigot is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.676 billion Marigotians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Marigotian economy, worth a remarkable 3,605 trillion east carribean dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 158,985 east carribean dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,454,825 per year while the poor average 1,874, a ratio of 776 to 1.

Employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Marigot's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Marigot is ranked 195,850th in the world and 180th in The Western Isles for Most Authoritarian, with 191.41 milliStalins.
