The Marconian State

Population4.603 billion


AnimalNational Animal

The Pretitle of The Marconian State is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.603 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 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marconian economy, worth 847 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 common. Average income is an impressive 184,020 Currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, and CAPITAL CITY's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space. 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 71,894th in the world and 123rd in Thaecia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.62 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
