The Federal Socialist Republic of Martilia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ferdinand Garcia with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 15.994 billion Martilians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kasbino. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Martilian economy, worth a remarkable 2,573 trillion Yartas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,930 Yartas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, owning a fishing rod can cause you to be subject to military questioning, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martilia's national animal is the Fish Eating Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Martilia is ranked 167,617th in the world and 65th in Greater Dienstad for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -559.88 on the Hayek Index.
