The Republic of Martenyika is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 426 million Martenyikans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kessa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The very strong Martenyikan economy, worth 27.4 trillion Kejs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 64,271 Kejs, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Army rations are served on silver platters, teens reminisce about when birthdays weren't celebrated with a cool glass of cabbage juice and a slice of corn-cream topped millet cake, Martenyika has designated Kessa as its capital city, and prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Martenyika's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Martenyika is ranked 68,471st in the world and 110th in The Western Isles for Most Developed, scoring 54.8 on the Human Development Index.
