The Autocratic States of Martonica is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grymll Goldensmyth with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 2.315 billion Martonicans 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 Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldynforge. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Martonic economy, worth 199 trillion Löts a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 85,966 Löts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. 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 137,628th in the world and 5,228th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 47.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
