The Empire of United Martians is a tiny, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18 million United Martiansians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.1%.

The strong United Martiansian economy, worth 1.00 trillion Martian Credits a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,735 Martian Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 158,332 per year while the poor average 15,667, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, sweet-toothed United Martiansians have been left penniless by the VAT on candy, video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Martians's national animal is the Space Squid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

United Martians is ranked 134,346th in the world and 1,035th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.47 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
