The Marsupial Illuminati

LeaderThe Eye of Providence


The Conjugations 🙵 Declensions of The Marsupial Illuminati is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Eye of Providence with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.923 billion Marsupials enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsupium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Marsupial economy, worth a remarkable 1,455 trillion Pouches a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 112,611 Pouches, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Women should never trust a man who turns up to a first date with an open bottle in his hand, the nation's favourite colour is orange (The Marsupial Illuminati has found 4 easter eggs), first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, and the government regrets to say that it is forced to make cuts to citizens. Crime is pervasive, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Marsupial Illuminati's national animal is the Marsupial, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pouchism.

The Marsupial Illuminati is ranked 59,613th in the world and 1st in Sodom and Gomorrah for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,187.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
