The New Alternate Republic of Martune is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Brian Mills with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.705 billion Martuneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pearl Bay. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Martunean economy, worth 753 trillion Kinkas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 132,037 Kinkas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 452,216 per year while the poor average 28,319, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, road rage is rarer but more terminal now that many people drive fully-operational battle tanks to work, and citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Martune's national animal is the Mountain Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Martune is ranked 7,698th in the world and 4th in Libertas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8,610.64 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
