The Free Land of Bob Marley is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 17.677 billion Bob Marleyians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Welfare, with Healthcare, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingston. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Bob Marleyian economy, worth 185 trillion spliffs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 10,482 spliffs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and Bob Marley has designated Kingston as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bob Marley's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bob Marley is ranked 90,009th in the world and 4th in Jamaica for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 588.43 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
