The Marxist Republic of Marikia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Dvořák with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.024 billion Marikians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volda. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The Marikian economy, worth 398 trillion Korunas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Cheese Exports industry. Average income is 79,353 Korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marikia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Marikia is ranked 161,210th in the world and 4,972nd in Balder for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -11.74 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
