The Absolute Monarchy of Holy Marcus Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Holy Empress Zabrina of House Fritz with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.889 billion Marcusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenseigan. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Marcusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,880 trillion Vinzes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 211,598 Vinzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, foreign musicians that Holy Empress Zabrina of House Fritz dislikes are turned away at the border, it's always rabbit season, and in the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Marcus Empire's national animal is the Marcusian Tiger Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Holy Marcus Empire is ranked 907th in the world and 50th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.35 on the Human Development Index.
