The Republic of Marvinville is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 863 million Marvinvilleans 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 44.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Marvinvillean economy, worth 23.4 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,158 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marvinville's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Marvinville is ranked 85,858th in the world and 236th in Thaecia for Safest, scoring 82.82 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
