The Representative Republic of Margandy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emily Jheff with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.409 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 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Margandyian economy, worth 755 trillion Mahcs a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,841 Mahcs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. 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 8,383rd in the world and 411th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,169.05 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
