The Not so democratic republic of Marlo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Archonovich with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 5.342 billion Marloans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okpueze. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marloan economy, worth 984 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,288 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The once prosperous capital is in utter decline, when shaking hands with foreign leaders Chancellor Archonovich wears an armoured gauntlet, nations that kill a Marloan can expect a strongly worded letter, and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marlo's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Marlo is ranked 134,882nd in the world and 82nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Stationary, with 95.93360526912 days.
