Location: The Order of the Grey Wardens

Regional Influence: Vassal


The Republic of Marktrah is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Markus Monroe with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, avant-garde cinema, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed population of 1.475 billion Marktrahians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whitebridge. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marktrahian economy, worth 232 trillion Denariis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 157,735 Denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Marktrah after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, meat-eating is frowned upon, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'Liondogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marktrah's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Holy Celtic Church.

Marktrah is ranked 218,313th in the world and 328th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Highest Drug Use, scoring 26.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
