The Island Imperium of Markanite is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Mark with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 27.338 billion Markaniteans 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 Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 68.4%.

The all-consuming Markanitean economy, worth a remarkable 2,021 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,938 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, autocrats are persona non grata, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Markanite flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Markanite's national animal is the White Marked Tree Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Markanite is ranked 62,995th in the world and 619th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,373.22 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
