The Kingdom of Marpegon is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 282 million Marpegonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The tiny government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Marpegonian economy, worth 15.9 trillion Marpes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 56,378 Marpes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, tantrum-throwing toddlers are regularly imprisoned on assault charges, and babies are increasingly seen as a luxury. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Marpegon's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
