The Klaus Devestatorie Empire of MarkLatham is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 26.792 billion MarkLathamians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The very strong MarkLathamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,570 trillion Halicarnassuses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 58,631 Halicarnassuses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 331,845 per year while the poor average 5,075, a ratio of 65.4 to 1.

The government has legalised small-scale capitalism, the MarkLatham Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. Crime is a problem. MarkLatham's national animal is the Charizard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

MarkLatham is ranked 7,974th in the world and 19th in Ordo Imperialia for Fattest Citizens, with 18.41 Obesity Rate.
