The Representative Republic of Margandy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ehmily Jheff with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 8.137 billion Marjandyians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Margandyian economy, worth 951 trillion Mahcs a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,896 Mahcs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, and there's never a spare chair in the retirement home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Margandy's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Margandy is ranked 178,539th in the world and 6,608th in Lazarus for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.44 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
