The Ostentatious Grand Duchy of Markreich is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mark with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 39.914 billion Markreichians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Defense, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Markburg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Markreichian economy, worth an astonishing 17,384 trillion Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 435,543 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,396,383 per year while the poor average 103,047, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Markreich's national animal is the Neon Tetra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Old Believers.

Markreich is ranked 21,921st in the world and 1st in The Village for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,750.75 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
