The Republic of Marxstadt is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 3.146 billion Marxstadtians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Marxstadtian economy, worth 659 trillion equalities a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Furniture Restoration. 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 209,520 equalities, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, and a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Marxstadt's national animal is the homo sapiens, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Marxstadt is ranked 283,031st in the world and 5th in Fuseishuu for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -21.99 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
