Marina and The Diamonds

CurrencyRobotic Coin

The Imperial Monarchy of Marina and The Diamonds is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Empress Marina with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.705 billion Marina and The Diamondsians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marindias. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Marina and The Diamondsian economy, worth 996 trillion Robotic Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 148,663 Robotic Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 955,778 per year while the poor average 9,382, a ratio of 101 to 1.

Bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marina and The Diamonds's national animal is the Whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Christianity.

Marina and The Diamonds is ranked 70,070th in the world and 16th in Warzone Sandbox for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,969.28 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
