|Leader||President Cornelius Crewes|
The Corporate Federation of Maritzal is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Cornelius Crewes with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 8.543 billion Maritzalians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meridian. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Maritzalian economy, worth a remarkable 3,518 trillion Pistas a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 411,857 Pistas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,341,879 per year while the poor average 95,166, a ratio of 14.1 to 1.
Newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Cats and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, people are always able to look each other in the eye, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Maritzal's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Felis Catus.
