The Whisky Empire of Martoosh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Holy Bartender with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 29.32 billion Martooshians 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 relatively small government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Public Transport, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Temple of the Goddess Santori. The average income tax rate is 7.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Martooshian economy, worth a remarkable 4,710 trillion wee drams a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 160,666 wee drams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, exported livestock are wined and dined before they are flat ironed, serial killers share cells with serial jaywalkers, and the government is encouraging people to go on citric acid trips. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Martoosh's national animal is the barovian tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Martoosh is ranked 273,740th in the world and 7th in The Vast for Most Devout, with 2.56 prayers per hour.
