The Archipelago 🌊 of Marinho Islands is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Melanie Costa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.354 billion Marinos hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, 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 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Marino economy, worth 555 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 165,661 Marino reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, and hospitals have to sell their computers on vBay in order to afford the ransomware decryption payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marinho Islands's national animal is the Maned sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Marinho Islands is ranked 2,905th in the world and 88th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,886.38 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
