The Federal Republic of The Marcolinan Islands is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Coleman with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.364 billion Marcolinan Islandsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rora. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Marcolinan Islandsian economy, worth 277 trillion Bopoins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,487 Bopoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, and life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Marcolinan Islands's national animal is the Marcolinan manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is No official religion.

The Marcolinan Islands is ranked 9,623rd in the world and 165th in 10000 Islands for Most Pacifist, with 138.77 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
