The People's Republic of Martzian is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 831 million Martzianians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Martz City. The average income tax rate is 34.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Martzianian economy, worth 44.7 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 53,832 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Martzian are blocked up with orders for new public loos, refugees from other nations are flocking to Martzian's border, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martzian's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martzian is ranked 98,829th in the world and 3,592nd in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 69.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
