The Worker's Union of Mariano Island is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 518 million Mariano Islanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Techtopia. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Mossy economy, worth 41.6 trillion Mossy Dollars 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 80,217 Mossy Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right to free speech is being drastically curtailed, sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, the opposition leader's credibility has been undermined by constant attention drawn to a dodgy toupee, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mariano Island's national animal is the Marimo Moss-ball, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mariano Island is ranked 47,642nd in the world and 1st in The Grande Rockies for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 58.77 Effective Tax Rate.
