The Principality of Marlenka is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Hullånd VII with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.363 billion Marlenkans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mau-Sauya. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marlenkan economy, worth 418 trillion Konas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,465 Konas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and it's believed that women's brains will overheat if they think for themselves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marlenka's national animal is the Mountain Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hatarism.

Marlenka is ranked 10,697th in the world and 21st in Anteria for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,450.56 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
