The Sun Governed States of Maresi is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sopatra Mares with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.34 billion Maresians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starkovia City. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Maresian economy, worth 54.5 trillion mars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 40,653 mars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, the only women behind bars are barmaids, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maresi's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Maresi is ranked 138,707th in the world and 7,027th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.9 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
