The Empire of Marinonia is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 542 million Marinonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariejois. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Marinonian economy, worth 61.7 trillion Belis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 113,758 Belis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, and bailiffs must face down a fusillade of depleted uranium rounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marinonia's national animal is the Fire Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Marinonia is ranked 173,668th in the world and 17th in Boriopa for Safest, scoring 47.25 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
