New Marinia

Population1.672 billion

LeaderLady Emily


The Matriarchy of New Marinia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lady Emily with a fair hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.672 billion New Marinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Transylvania. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Marinian economy, worth 146 trillion bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is 87,365 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Marinia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Love.

New Marinia is ranked 208,276th in the world and 7,691st in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.65 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
