The Republic of Marxstadt is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 3.177 billion Marxstadtians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Marxstadtian economy, worth 664 trillion equalities a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Furniture Restoration. 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 an amazing 209,254 equalities, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Babysitters are a thing of the past, the government is eagerly awaiting a multi-million equality payment from a deposed Smalltopian monarch, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Marxstadt's national animal is the homo sapiens, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Marxstadt is ranked 274,442nd in the world and 5th in Fuseishuu for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
