The Shadow Empire of New Margaux is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Nikolai Naves with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed population of 908 million New Margauxians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Triablo. The average income tax rate is 10.7%.

The thriving New Margauxian economy, worth 77.6 trillion Marguins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 85,495 Marguins, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Clergy do their best to cover up their old tattoos, New Margauxians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. New Margaux's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Margaux is ranked 195,238th in the world and 4th in Middle Earth Roleplay for Nudest, with 53.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
