Republic of Markano

Population731 million



The KuRiSa SaNjI EnDoRsEmEnT of Republic of Markano is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 731 million 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 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Markan economy, worth 71.8 trillion Markanians a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,232 Markanians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university. Crime is totally unknown. Republic of Markano's national animal is the Pidgeon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republic of Markano is ranked 61,992nd in the world and 25th in Karma for Most Stationary, with 130.62101362472 Days.
