LeaderPrime Minister Matthieu Dubois


The Floating Speaker of Marlducro is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Matthieu Dubois with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.882 billion Marlducroans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Folsburgh. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marlducroan economy, worth 936 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 191,781 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Skateparks can be found in every city, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is totally unknown. Marlducro's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Marlducro is ranked 20,079th in the world and 793rd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 113.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
