The Federation of Marthuania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Marius Kravtsjenko Oktyabrskiy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.869 billion Marthuanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pravda. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Marthuanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,761 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 415,427 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marthuania's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Marthuania is ranked 224,221st in the world and 364th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -17.03 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
