The Brains of Marxmeans is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Brains with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.365 billion Marxmasians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Das Kapital. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Marxmasian economy, worth 978 trillion Brains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 153,667 Brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime is totally unknown. Marxmeans's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Communism.

Marxmeans is ranked 223,011th in the world and 790th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
