The Horde of The Marakwa is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dori Mozh Heqet with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.272 billion Marakwans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Golden Yurt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.4%.

The strong Marakwan economy, worth 169 trillion Giant Maggot Shells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 51,804 Giant Maggot Shells, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, Marakwan farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, and class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Marakwa's national animal is the Giant Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Marakwa is ranked 262,796th in the world and 17th in Laraniem for Smartest Citizens, with 1.02 quips per hour.
