The Republic of Martenyika is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.838 billion Martenyikans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kessa. The average income tax rate is 51.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Martenyikan economy, worth 171 trillion Kejs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 44,683 Kejs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables, it is said that a Martenyikan woman's work is never done, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Martenyika's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Martenyika is ranked 178,071st in the world and 93rd in The Western Isles for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.95 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
