The International Republic of Marturians is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Zarkin with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, vat-grown people, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.662 billion marturians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barzel. The average income tax rate is 25.1%.

The frighteningly efficient marturian economy, worth a remarkable 1,531 trillion niobiums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 229,923 niobiums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

All tariffs have been abolished, celebrity wrestlers thumb their nose at due process, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, and agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marturians's national animal is the blue macaw, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pluralism.

Marturians is ranked 13,495th in the world and 21st in Novo Brasil for Most Secular, with 83.59 Atheism Rate.
