The Absolute Monarchy of Holy Marcus Empire is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Holy Empress Zabrina of House Fritz with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.245 billion Marcusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenseigan. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Marcusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,544 trillion Vinzes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,210 Vinzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, children often kick Marcusian Tiger Sharks for amusement, stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Marcus Empire's national animal is the Marcusian Tiger Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Holy Marcus Empire is ranked 1,050th in the world and 63rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.61 on the Human Development Index.
