The United People's Commonwealth of Marrinia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rabie el-Nahri with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 1.165 billion Marrinians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rivieria. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marrinian economy, worth 113 trillion Marrinian pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 97,695 Marrinian pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists on vacation find Sunni Islam's scriptures make useful doorstops, billions of Marrinian pounds are being poured into a space program, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, and the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marrinia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Marrinia is ranked 88,851st in the world and 3,371st in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,321.66 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
