The United Kingdom of Novo Marco is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Marco VI with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.346 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 Monte Carlo. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Marcian economy, worth 826 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 246,945 Marcian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. 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 Anglicanism.

Novo Marco is ranked 1,570th in the world and 2nd in Redlandia for Most Developed, scoring 97.26 on the Human Development Index.
