The Federation of Marthuania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marius Kravtsjenko Oktyabrskiy with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.751 billion Marthuanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pravda. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Marthuanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,551 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 387,293 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Marius Kravtsjenko Oktyabrskiy performing the Full-Monty are selling out, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and nations that kill a Marthuanian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marthuania's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Marthuania is ranked 25,882nd in the world and 75th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Income Equality, scoring 64.88 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
