United Provinces of Marciano

Population659 million


The Democratic States of United Provinces of Marciano is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its digital currency, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 659 million United Provinces of Marcianoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The United Provinces of Marcianoan economy, worth 31.2 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 47,405 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and young girls often attend the same schools as their children. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Provinces of Marciano's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

United Provinces of Marciano is ranked 111,579th in the world and 4,968th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -95.34 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
