The Armed Republic of Het Korps Mariniers is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dux autem Pacis with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.741 billion Het Korps Mariniersians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Civitas pacem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.0%.

The strong Het Korps Mariniersian economy, worth 130 trillion Pacific Guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 74,769 Pacific Guilders, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

The 'sing-a-long with Dux autem Pacis' album is a popular souvenir, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, for 25 Pacific Guilders tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, and loading sixteen tons of laundry gets you another year older and deeper in debt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Het Korps Mariniers's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Het Korps Mariniers is ranked 95,379th in the world and 62nd in Resuscitation for Highest Economic Output, with 130 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
