The Most Serene Republic of Margila Islands is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 995 million Margila Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Margila Islandian economy, worth 97.8 trillion Guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 98,287 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is. Crime is totally unknown. Margila Islands's national animal is the Behemoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Margila Islands is ranked 201,406th in the world and 6,488th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.59 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
