The Corporate Federation of Maritzal is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Cornelius Crewes with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 6.823 billion Maritzalians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meridian. The average income tax rate is 66.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Maritzalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,201 trillion Pistas a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 322,718 Pistas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Glamping Maritzalians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Maritzal's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Maritzal is ranked 248th in the world and 7th in Europe for Most Secular, with 99.22 Atheism Rate.
