The Republic of Marvinville is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.387 billion Marvinvilleans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Marvinvillean economy, worth 35.9 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,902 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, and the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marvinville's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Marvinville is ranked 108,106th in the world and 124th in Thaecia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,271.38 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
