The United Kingdom of Novo Marco is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prince Nicolas of Marco with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.307 billion Marcians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marygrove. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Marcian economy, worth a remarkable 1,066 trillion Marcian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 247,684 Marcian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, and you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novo Marco's national animal is the Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Order of Vaihivon.

Novo Marco is ranked 3,486th in the world and 9th in The Redlands for Highest Average Incomes, with 247,684.98 Standard Monetary Units.
