“In tutela nostra Markla”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: the South Pacific
The Republic of Markla is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 624 million Marklans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Markla City. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Marklan economy, worth 68.1 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 109,111 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
The sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, the children of Markla are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in the South Pacific, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Markla's national animal is the orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
