The Republic of Marxstadt is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its triple-decker prams, fear of technology, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 2.649 billion Marxstadtians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Marxstadtian economy, worth 525 trillion equalities a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Furniture Restoration. 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 198,318 equalities, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's new "quiet competence" initiative has supporters and detractors alike reeling in confusion, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, you gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Marxstadt's national animal is the homo sapiens, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Marxstadt is ranked 254,865th in the world and 5th in Fuseishuu for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.24 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
