The Marconian State

Population2.366 billion

The Van of The Marconian State is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.366 billion Marconians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CAPITAL CITY. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marconian economy, worth 442 trillion Currencies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,856 Currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, and the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought. Crime is totally unknown. The Marconian State's national animal is the National Animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Religion.

The Marconian State is ranked 14,372nd in the world and 19th in Thaecia for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 80.56 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
