The Corporate Federation of Maritzal is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Cornelius Crewes with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, avant-garde cinema, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.794 billion Maritzalians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meridian. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Maritzalian economy, worth a remarkable 4,166 trillion Pistas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 425,421 Pistas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,457,031 per year while the poor average 91,245, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, nations that kill a Maritzalian can expect a strongly worded letter, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", and the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Maritzalian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maritzal's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Maritzal is ranked 199,456th in the world and 734th in Europe for Most Primitive, scoring -107.75 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
