The United Kingdom of Dragao do Mar is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Lorenzo Santiago with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.995 billion Marians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortaleza. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.7%.

The all-consuming Marian economy, worth 504 trillion Marian Iracemas a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 101,067 Marian Iracemas, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 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 3,305th in the world and 35th in The Western Isles for Most Influential, scoring 19,358 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
