The Corporate State of Marcolos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Director Bettaro with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.117 billion Marcoli 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Upper Management. The average income tax rate is 11.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Marcolian economy, worth 448 trillion Joints 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. 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 amazing 211,864 Joints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", a paperwork error has naval privateers being directed to attack land-locked nations, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and Marcolians have become death, the destroyer of worlds. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Marcolos's national animal is the Great Northern Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is money.

Marcolos is ranked 24,661st in the world and 511th in Osiris for Highest Drug Use, scoring 107 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
