The Holy Empire of Marabia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Al Kabirah with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.252 billion Marabs 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Spirituality, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marabesh City. The average income tax rate is 78.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Marabian economy, worth 679 trillion Marabian Dirhams a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,672 Marabian Dirhams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Winceyette robes are a popular wedding gift, neighboring nations are tired of Marabia's big fish stories, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Marabia's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Marabia is ranked 27,348th in the world and 1,370th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 86.42 Years.
