The Republic of Marcellinople is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Marcus Aurelius with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working population of 29.435 billion Marcellinopleans 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marcellinople Urbs. The average income tax rate is 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Marcellinoplean economy, worth a remarkable 6,960 trillion Denarii Marcellis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 236,475 Denarii Marcellis, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, and nine out of ten citizens of Marcellinople answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marcellinople's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Marcellinople is ranked 53,181st in the world and 2,090th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,925.92 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
