The Disputed Territories of MarinersAgainstTheNavy is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Captain with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 873 million Mariners are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fo'c's'le. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving MarinersAgainstTheNavyian economy, worth 79.7 trillion Grogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry. Average income is 91,344 Grogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, and political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MarinersAgainstTheNavy's national animal is the Bosun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

MarinersAgainstTheNavy is ranked 11,612th in the world and 13th in Leninglad for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,604.56 Tourists Per Hour.
