Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Island Republic of Markanite is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Mark with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 16.863 billion Markaniteans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lurgan. The average income tax rate is 49.9%.

The Markanitean economy, worth 656 trillion Punts a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,940 Punts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Markanite's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Markanite is ranked 50,849th in the world and 421st in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.74 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
