The Marlborough

Population850 million

Currencypound sterling

The Kingdom of The Marlborough is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 850 million Marlboroughians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 33.6%.

The Marlboroughian economy, worth 44.2 trillion pound sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,959 pound sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, notable individuals are granted land and titles, and manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Marlborough's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Marlborough is ranked 160,055th in the world and 7th in Vaporwave Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.14 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
