The Divinus Imperium of Martis Urbe is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Divinum Imperator Martis Genesius with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.193 billion Martis Urbeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Martis Urbe. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Martis Urbean economy, worth a remarkable 8,116 trillion Martis Golds 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 a breathtaking 571,843 Martis Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, tourists on boat cruises can't figure out why they smell so fishy afterward, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Martis Urbe's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Genesiusiany.

Martis Urbe is ranked 734th in the world and 1st in Genesius Union for Most Armed, with 24.66 Weapons Per Person.
