Free States of Marina

Population382 million


The Most Serene Republic of Free States of Marina is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 382 million Marinans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 17.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Marinan economy, worth 24.8 trillion golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 65,028 golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, school children across the country are staging hunger strikes to protest government-mandated salads, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Free States of Marina's national animal is the Leprechaun.

Free States of Marina is ranked 118,205th in the world and 4,798th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 799.07 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
