The Socialist Union of Marshava is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Security Council with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.143 billion Marshavans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Mirkava. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marshavan economy, worth 311 trillion Clays a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 145,363 Clays, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, international tensions are high as Marshava threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and foreign musicians that The Security Council dislikes are turned away at the border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marshava's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cosmicism.

Marshava is ranked 552nd in the world and 362nd in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 248 valid endorsements.
