New Marinia

Population1.672 billion

LeaderLady Emily


The Matriarchy of New Marinia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Emily with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.672 billion New Marinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Transylvania. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Marinian economy, worth 146 trillion bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is 87,451 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, New Marinia has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and recognizing the New Marinian flag qualifies you for citizenship. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Marinia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Love.

New Marinia is ranked 208,367th in the world and 7,714th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.65 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
