The Queen's State of Markdale is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 25.4 billion Markdaleans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.1%.

The thriving Markdalean economy, worth a remarkable 1,190 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is 46,854 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 318,551 per year while the poor average 2,517, a ratio of 126 to 1.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and deers are considered a delicacy. Crime is a serious problem. Markdale's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is none.

Markdale is ranked 26,376th in the world and 3rd in Tanzania for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
