The State of Marican is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 804 million Marics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariban City. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marican economy, worth 99.0 trillion Fasoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 123,122 Fasoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Nations that kill a Maric can expect a strongly worded letter, it is said that a Marican woman's work is never done, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Marican language, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. Crime is totally unknown. Marican's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Marican is ranked 167,610th in the world and 12th in NBF for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 17.1 on the Hayek Index.
