New Marinia

Population2.597 billion

LeaderLady Emily


The Matriarchy of New Marinia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lady Emily with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.597 billion New Marinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Transylvania. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Marinian economy, worth 240 trillion bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is 92,481 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, New Marinia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Marinia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Love.

New Marinia is ranked 7,281st in the world and 232nd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,502.4 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
