The Not so democratic republic of Marlo is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Archonovich with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.129 billion Marloans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okpueze. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marloan economy, worth 719 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 174,233 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, and a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marlo's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Marlo is ranked 220,895th in the world and 129th in Caer Sidi for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 53.81 Workforce Participation Rate.
