The Most Serene Republic of Martinople is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Martin Decimus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.805 billion Martinopleans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Martinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.1%.
The powerhouse Martinoplean economy, worth 226 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 125,324 Denarii, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.
Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martinople's national animal is the Golden Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
