The Representative Republic of Margandy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ehmily Jheff with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.604 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Margandyian economy, worth 962 trillion Mahcs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,896 Mahcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 very 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 51,293rd in the world and 1,840th in Lazarus for Nudest, with 180.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
