Marvinton

Population530 million

The Republic of Marvinton is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 530 million Marvintonians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 21.8%.

The all-consuming Marvintonian economy, worth 56.6 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 106,772 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

People who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, and the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Marvinton is ranked 65,473rd in the world and 68th in The LCRUA for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,615.61 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
