The Kingdom of Mardessa is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 439 million Mardessans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varlyn. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Mardessan economy, worth 31.6 trillion Florins 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 71,939 Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, transgender and agender are on the education agenda, international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mardessa's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mardessa is ranked 172,857th in the world and 7,524th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.18 Crimes Per Hour.
