The Empire of Space Marine 18 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 3.201 billion Space Marine 18ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Space Marine 18ian economy, worth 70.7 trillion Throne Gelts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 22,088 Throne Gelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is paving paradises to put up parking lots, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Space Marine 18's national animal is the Aquila, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Space Marine 18 is ranked 225,356th in the world and 3,625th in Artificial Solar System for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.59 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
