The Republic of Marvinton is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.257 billion Marvintonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 30.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Marvintonian economy, worth 138 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 109,986 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

International tensions are high as Marvinton threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marvinton's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Marvinton is ranked 82,809th in the world and 13th in Republic of Free Nations for Most Extreme, scoring 18.19 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
