The Divinus Imperium of Martis Urbe is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Divinum Imperator Martis Genesius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, triple-decker prams, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.923 billion Martis Urbeans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Martis Urbe. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Martis Urbean economy, worth a remarkable 7,424 trillion Martis Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 622,685 Martis Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, the law says that all Martis Urbeans are created equal — no matter how they were created, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Martis Urbe's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Genesiusiany.

Martis Urbe is ranked 3,574th in the world and 4th in Genesius Union for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 8,925.83 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
