The United Kingdom of Dragao do Mar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Lorenzo Santiago with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.151 billion Marians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortaleza. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Marian economy, worth 708 trillion Marian Iracemas a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,047 Marian Iracemas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Violet Mile now refers to the long line-ups that former death row inmates wait in as they transfer to maximum security prisons, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dragao do Mar's national animal is the Harpy eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dragao do Mar is ranked 6,276th in the world and 13th in The Western Isles for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,111.61 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
