The Kingdom of Mark-Brandenburg is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 912 million Mark-Brandenburgians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brandenburg. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Mark-Brandenburgian economy, worth 37.9 trillion Pfennigs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,586 Pfennigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, Mark-Brandenburg has designated Brandenburg as its capital city, and the government has become increasingly militant. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mark-Brandenburg's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mark-Brandenburg is ranked 30,619th in the world and 937th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 895.07 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
