Republic of Markano

Population1.707 billion

LeaderRaptii Freedii


The Tea loving nation of Republic of Markano is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Raptii Freedii with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.707 billion Markans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beginnia. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Markan economy, worth 186 trillion Markiis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,494 Markiis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, the Great Pyramid of Beginnia can be seen from miles away, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, and religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Markano's national animal is the Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is EnDoRsEmEnTiSm.

Republic of Markano is ranked 7,162nd in the world and 10th in Karma for Best Weather, with 235 Meters Of Sunlight.
