The United Socialist States of Lower Sted Marth is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 266 million Marthianians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hiroshima. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lower Sted Marthian economy, worth 13.1 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,088 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, Lower Sted Marth has designated Hiroshima as its capital city, the Lower Sted Marth Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Sted Marth's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lower Sted Marth is ranked 186,865th in the world and 919th in Europe for Highest Economic Output, with 13.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
