The Free Land of Martilliopen is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the General Confederation of Labour with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.73 billion Martilliopenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Martilliopenian economy, worth 231 trillion labour notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,864 labour notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, in a baffling press conference the General Confederation of Labour proudly dismantled a broken door, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer. Crime is totally unknown. Martilliopen's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martilliopen is ranked 86,529th in the world and 83rd in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,427.46 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
