The Archipelago 🌊 of Marinho Islands is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Melanie Costa with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.917 billion Marinos are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cidade de Marinho. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marino economy, worth 224 trillion Marino reais a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 117,146 Marino reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, going on a diet invalidates your passport, the horniness of the great-horned Maned sloth is considered a national priority, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marinho Islands's national animal is the Maned sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular state.

Marinho Islands is ranked 126,568th in the world and 4,806th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 613.98 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
