The Republic of Marvinville is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.203 billion Marvinvilleans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Healthcare, with Education, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Marvinvillean economy, worth 198 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 27,548 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, and good-looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marvinville's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Marvinville is ranked 219,977th in the world and 132nd in Thaecia for Most Primitive, scoring -79.25 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
