The International Republic of Marturians is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zarkin with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.241 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 25.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient marturian economy, worth a remarkable 1,202 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 229,534 niobiums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and tourists call marturian beach towns "the fine coastline". 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 3,336th in the world and 13th in Novo Brasil for Most Developed, scoring 95.58 on the Human Development Index.
