The Republic of Martenyika is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its frequent executions and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.427 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 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Martenyikan economy, worth 167 trillion Kejs a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 48,884 Kejs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

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. Martenyika's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martenyika is ranked 78,074th in the world and 107th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 947.73 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
