The Pink Holy of The Marlands is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 766 million Marlandi 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrassil. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Marlandi economy, worth 68.1 trillion Brains a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,948 Brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, the Marlandi Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, and Santa Claus is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Marlands's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Marlands is ranked 182,956th in the world and 7,289th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.02 percentage of bribes refused.
