Republic of Markano

Population2.513 billion

LeaderRaptii Freedii


The Mar is more British than Lan of Republic of Markano is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Raptii Freedii with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.513 billion Markans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beginnia. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Markan economy, worth 275 trillion Markiis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,450 Markiis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, the tightness of border controls in Republic of Markano leave a little to be desired, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Markano's national animal is the Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is EnDoRsEmEnTiSm.

Republic of Markano is ranked 127,047th in the world and 144th in Karma for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.89 on the Rand Index.
