The Most Handsome of Marrabuk is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General-Admiral Mat Hardy with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.873 billion Marrabukians 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Aminah. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Marrabukian economy, worth a remarkable 1,345 trillion Marrabuk Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 229,146 Marrabuk Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marrabuk's national animal is the Electric Marrabuk Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spiky Nose Hair.

Marrabuk is ranked 201,280th in the world and 7,908th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.4 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
