The Democratic States of Martonica is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed population of 706 million Martonicans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nucking Futz. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Martonic economy, worth 43.3 trillion Löts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,285 Löts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Leader For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Leader's supporters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martonica's national animal is the Krakkan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martonica is ranked 73,435th in the world and 3,223rd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,826.07 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
