The Principality of Marinokoni is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 526 million Marinokonese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mayakrónja. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Marinokonese economy, worth 39.2 trillion Yaris a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,486 Yaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, the government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, and Marinokonese Gladiators is a ratings success. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marinokoni's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Marinokoni is ranked 57,962nd in the world and 1,216th in the Rejected Realms for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,248.59 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
