The Republic of Martenyika is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.677 billion Martenyikans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kessa. The average income tax rate is 50.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Martenyikan economy, worth 165 trillion Kejs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 45,139 Kejs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables, it is said that a Martenyikan woman's work is never done, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martenyika's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martenyika is ranked 22,675th in the world and 74th in The Western Isles for Most Beautiful Environments, with 979.08 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
