The Imperial Regency of Marshalia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Asano with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.347 billion Marshalians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seolum. The average income tax rate is 37.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Marshalian economy, worth 478 trillion Marshalian quais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 203,905 Marshalian quais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marshalia's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Marshalia is ranked 25,322nd in the world and 945th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,562.71 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
