The Worker's Union of Marxiland is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Adam Ahmed with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 869 million Marxus enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Leningrad. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Marxilandian economy, worth 84.8 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 97,569 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, Adam Ahmed has more friends than ever before, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marxiland's national animal is the panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Marxiland is ranked 14,001st in the world and 20th in The Empire of Mare Nostrum for Most Developed, scoring 81.95 on the Human Development Index.
