The Roman Regnum of Marina Nova is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rex Romulus Augustulus with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.871 billion Marina Novans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marina Nova. The average income tax rate is 32.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marina Novan economy, worth 660 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 170,500 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, people invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids, and the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marina Nova's national animal is the Canis lupus signatus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Latin Christianism.

Marina Nova is ranked 4,675th in the world and 90th in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 17,538.14 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
