The Republic of Mariannie is a huge, genial nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 288 million Mariannians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Mariannian economy, worth 12.7 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 44,125 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, vehicular homicide by Mariannian ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities, and commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mariannie's national animal is the gallic rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mariannie is ranked 182,127th in the world and 994th in Europe for Rudest Citizens, with 32.88 Insults Per Minute.
