The Meritocratic Union of Marquesan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Archard Delphine with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.565 billion Marquesans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuku Hiva. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Marquesan economy, worth a remarkable 3,041 trillion Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 208,827 Aureuses, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and more and more people are signing up for the government party. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Marquesan's national animal is the Red-Crowned Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Rakanism.

Marquesan is ranked 1,489th in the world and 5th in Gholgoth for Highest Crime Rates, with 39.75 Crimes Per Hour.
