The 𝔏𝔦𝔟𝔢𝔯𝔞𝔩 𝔄𝔯𝔱𝔦𝔰𝔱 of The Marsupial Illuminati is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Eye of Providence with an even hand, and notable for its fear of technology, prohibition of alcohol, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.977 billion Marsupials are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsupium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Marsupial economy, worth a remarkable 1,138 trillion Pouches a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 114,075 Pouches, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rumor has it that the government was paid off by the mob to allow casinos to reopen, public urination is on the increase, rumor has it that The Eye of Providence has won three lotteries in a row, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime is a major problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Marsupial Illuminati's national animal is the Marsupial, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pouchism.

The Marsupial Illuminati is ranked 149,440th in the world and 1st in Sodom and Gomorrah for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 30,001.97 Standard Monetary Units.
