The Island Imperium of Markanite is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Mark with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, zero percent divorce rate, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 24.848 billion Markaniteans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 50.3%.

The very strong Markanitean economy, worth a remarkable 1,286 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 51,792 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, students do more community service than homework, and playing an online nation simulation game legally obliges you to buy the creator's latest novel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Markanite's national animal is the White Marked Tree Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Markanite is ranked 4,365th in the world and 31st in 10000 Islands for Largest Populations, with 24.8 billion Capita.
