The Eternal Empire of United Martians is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Helexium Mariux I with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.046 billion Martians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verse. The average income tax rate is 48.7%.

The all-consuming United Martiansian economy, worth 112 trillion Martian Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 107,103 Martian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Emperor Helexium Mariux I is the self-declared God of all United Martians, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Martians's national animal is the Space Squid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is The Order of Mars.

United Martians is ranked 25,468th in the world and 385th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77.56 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
