The Second Worker's Republic of Mariano Island is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The New People's Mother with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.732 billion Mariano Islanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Techtopia. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mossy economy, worth 725 trillion Mossy Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 153,349 Mossy Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Meteorologists warn of fog just past 4pm daily, autocrats are persona non grata, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and the news is showing footage of The New People's Mother bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mariano Island's national animal is the Marimo Moss-ball, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mariano Island is ranked 56,739th in the world and 392nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,224.42 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
