The People's Republic of Markkar is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 327 million Markkarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Markkarian economy, worth 21.5 trillion Markkarettes 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 65,732 Markkarettes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, and shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Markkar. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Markkar's national animal is the Portuguese Man-of-War, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Markkar is ranked 17,089th in the world and 63rd in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 38.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
