The Island Imperium of Markanite is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Mark with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 27.306 billion Markaniteans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 68.8%.

The all-consuming Markanitean economy, worth a remarkable 2,000 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,271 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Bastion as a backdrop, recapturing giraffes is proving to be a tall order, the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up, and there's a bright dawn ahead for Markanite. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Markanite's national animal is the White Marked Tree Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Markanite is ranked 219,992nd in the world and 1,327th in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 24.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
