The Fascist Parody of Marionetonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fuehrer with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.957 billion Marionetonians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dallas. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Marionetonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,720 trillion strings a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 291,110 strings, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,525,481 per year while the poor average 29,770, a ratio of 51.2 to 1.
Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle, deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, and pet rocks are sold by the pound. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marionetonia's national animal is the puppeteer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
