The Queen's State of Margiana is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 9.837 billion Margianans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Defense, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The strong Margianan economy, worth 545 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 55,487 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 377,248 per year while the poor average 2,981, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Surveillance cameras are banned, voting is voluntary, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Margiana's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Margiana is ranked 112,629th in the world and 8th in Edmonton for Most Stationary, with 61.38132877148 Days.
