The Queendom of Marceaux is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 4.546 billion Marceauxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 34.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Marceauxian economy, worth 95.5 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 21,008 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marceaux's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Marceaux is ranked 121,566th in the world and 318th in Hsiao Han for Most Avoided, scoring 1.53 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
