The Republic of Martenyika is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.613 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 enormous government prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Defense, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kessa. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Martenyikan economy, worth 323 trillion Kejs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 48,846 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 totally unknown, 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 58,933rd in the world and 130th in The Western Isles for Highest Poor Incomes, with 35,814.98 Standard Monetary Units.
