The Imperium of Marquesan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Felix I with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.234 billion Marquesans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuku Hiva. The average income tax rate is 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marquesan economy, worth a remarkable 4,563 trillion Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 205,238 Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Document forgery is a critical skill for would-be politicians, new "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and news headlines usually include p-values. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Marquesan's national animal is the Red-Crowned Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Drekanity.

Marquesan is ranked 35,020th in the world and 6th in Esvanovia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 292,345 Standard Monetary Units.
