The Autocratic States of Martonica is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grymll Goldensmyth with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 2.186 billion Martonicans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldynforge. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Martonic economy, worth 187 trillion Löts a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 85,991 Löts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and the country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martonica's national animal is the Krakkan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martonica is ranked 129,492nd in the world and 4,987th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.89 on the Rand Index.
