The Meritocratic Union of Marquesan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Archard Delphine with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.85 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, although Industry is also considered important, 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 3,108 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 209,311 Aureuses, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, crayon squiggles were a late addition to the works of the Renaissance Old Masters, there's a mortuary next to every Marquesan restaurant, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. 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 225,811th in the world and 23rd in Gholgoth for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -29.83 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
