The Fact Is Marble Is Queen of The World of Ares is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marble with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.966 billion Goliaths are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felix. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Pakkan economy, worth a remarkable 6,480 trillion Tangs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 432,991 Tangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The World of Ares has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible, and the church declares that everyone should get a large serving of nuts daily. Crime is totally unknown. The World of Ares's national animal is the Ant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Daddy.
