The Empire of Marli is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mansa Musa Marli with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.373 billion Marlians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Timbuktu. The average income tax rate is 71.5%.

The thriving Marlian economy, worth 116 trillion Marlian Dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. Average income is 85,183 Marlian Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state. Crime is totally unknown. Marli's national animal is the Afrikan Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Marli is ranked 29,990th in the world and 63rd in Spiritus for Safest, scoring 106.53 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
