The Marconian State

Population5.633 billion

The Former President of The Marconian State is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.633 billion Marconians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CAPITAL CITY. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marconian economy, worth a remarkable 1,021 trillion Currencies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,316 Currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, and CAPITAL CITY's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space. Crime is totally unknown. The Marconian State's national animal is the National Animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Religion.

The Marconian State is ranked 3,043rd in the world and 7th in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 96.53 on the Human Development Index.
