The People's Republic of Marielda is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Samothy with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 1.954 billion Marieldans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of First Light. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Marieldan economy, worth 144 trillion Silk Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,727 Silk Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, untold millions of Silk Coins are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marielda's national animal is the Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Marielda is ranked 89,468th in the world and 53rd in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
